One of the unexpected joys of homemade processing: using expired chemistries.
We love expired film and expired cameras, so we could love expired chemistries, right?
Using a Jobo ATL3 for some time now, I progressively observed some strange results with my E6 processes. I suspect that the reversal bath or the bleach (which took a dark orange tint) to be responsible.
So, as you can see in the gallery, things are going a bit wrong. A strange orange tint instead of clear whites, weird edges around lights in long exposures, confusion between positive or negative image, some unpredictable bursts of contrasts, and long dirty marks like if the film hadn’t been rinsed properly (but it was).
Furthermore, I noticed that Kodak films were more sensitive to expired chemistries than Fuji films, which is surprising as I use Kodak chemistries…
Anyway, if you ever have the chance to get expired chemistries don’t hesitate, just try them!
