Analogue films entail both surprise and shock. I should be immuned to this but I can’t help feeling upset for a while when my photos on Rossmann 100 came back horrible.
I had previously shot 4 rolls of expired Rossmann 100 and the photos were beautiful. However, this particular last roll of the batch came back as a dismay to me. I was very excited because I had my friend ferried the film to SHOWA Hong Kong for developing & processing. No, my friend did not put it into the check-in luggage. Anyway, let’s look at the photos.
Expired Rossmann 100
This is how the films looked like for the last few rolls:
The Rossmann 100 films are supposed to look normal, if not fantastic. I don’t think it’s the lab’s problem. I guess perhaps that particular film was so overly expired that it produced some weird colour shades/effects. Thankfully, it’s the last roll I have. Now, I am looking forward to using the Fujifilms I bought from Japan!
Happy shooting! And a Merry Christmas!
