Expired is Always Beautiful in Film

14

You would either love it, hate it, or even be scared of it! For the uncertainty expired film can give is always a big surprise for us Lomographers!

It could turn out dark or sometimes even blank! For expired film is a trick we always love to discover. But no matter how unsure it could get, we’d always try it and heck, get the best results we’ve ever had in our analogue life!

That’s why in this week’s selection of photos by the Community, we bring you 70 amazing analogue photographs which were shot with expired film. Some were even a decade old!

Credits: earlybird, atria007, russheath, antibiotyx, cc-in-paris, nicolas_noir, kdstevens, kylewis, ilovemydiana, grazie, mr_sid, marcus_loves_film, jennson, mcrstar, ccwu, stouf, endorphin, frauspatzi, dannyedwards, mephisto19, ck_berlin, a_lion, renaishashin, adzfar, adam_g2000, mczoum, bloomchen, novakmisi, aprilrich427, traaaart, erikagrendel, lucinda, freyfrey, kleeblatt, moodification, hervinsyah, adash, djramsay, modern_nmt, heart2heart, wil6ka, vici, theoclunk, happytea, 400-asa, life_on_mars, domyblue & porkchopsandy

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise.
