Some macro shots from the Mamiya-Sekor 1000TL on 800ISO 15-year expired film. Every shot on the roll has a different color tone, and are pretty much all underexposed. I've read that you should add 1 f-stop exposure for every decade expired the film is, so the last roll should be something I can dial in pretty good, knowing what I know now. Some of these shots, shot on a bright day, look like bizarre sea creatures photographed from the porthole of a submarine at the bottom of the ocean.

  1. Considering the age of the film the shots are quite good. It is anyone’s guess as to how the film may have been stored. Just a guess that the first one with the purple tint looks like the film got too hot. Not sure about the others.

    Merry Christmas!
