Expired lady

First time ever that i'm using an expired film roll - this one in particular was expired in 2006 - so i didn't know how the results might be. The Agfa 100 HDC was shot with Sunny 16 rule as a 25 ISO roll.

    With expired film don't hesitate to push it a stop or two depending on the age. They say a stop per decade. Nice shots!!

    @eloy61 Antes de subscribirse, yo tambien no sabìa nada de las peliculas caducadas, pero mirando a los risultados me intrigò y decidì probarlos. El unico problema es la compra en internet, porque ahora todas las peliculas caducadas costan casi como nuevas

    @steamtug1959 Grazie mille per le tue parole! Era la prima volta con una pellicola scaduta ed avevo parecchio timore sul risultato, fortunatamente ha rispecchiato l'effetto sperato! :)

    Really good portrait with atmosphere. I am pretty sure that only the film has expired , not the lady as the title suggests :)

    @crosschannel Yes, you're right, she's only 18! Thank you for your kindly words!

    @pmonroe Thank you so much for your words! Yes me too, but at that time i was a little afraid about using expired film; now i'm more confident and i want to get much more from this Agfa HDC so i'll continue to experiment!
