Let me share a review about shooting with expired Ferrania Solaris 200, the Italian color negative film made famous by the Japanese.
Ferrania Solaris Color Negative film is well known for producing pastel, faded hues, which is the exact thing I love about it. Their 100 and 200 CN are my go-to films when I want to produce dreamy, nostalgic images — imagine my surprise when this is not the case with a roll of expired ISO 200 film I won in a blog giveaway.
I must admit I never expected that this was how the pictures were going to turn out; before this, I would never describe the Solaris films as wholesome, but I adore the warm but slightly muted contrast in these. The color shifts are very obvious due to it being expired, but I definitely think they give the pictures more character than I would imagine.
It’s been some time since I used my favorite Solaris films while I experimented with other brands but this roll has gotten me really excited to get back into them again.
With color shifts from this lovely emulsion that bring about a surreal vibe, everyday settings look as if they're lifted straight from the pages of a fantasy novel. Take a peek at our selection of such scenes taken by our community members.
