Date Expired: 1999
This was the first film I have shot when I received my SLR. I had finally gotten it developed here in Sydney after one month of sitting in my bag. The lab called me once they finished developing as the film came out thin and asked if I still wanted it scanned. I gave the go ahead as I had waited for a month to see it on my screen and of course share it on this blog. Sadly the complication did not end there. On the following morning it was scheduled for pick up but the scanner was not burning them to CD and had to wait an extra day. Luckily it was fixed this morning and I have posted some of them here (I can’t show all of them at once) ;P
The scans came out soft and not contrasty with not alot of detail. I had to do some lightroom editing to get some details back. Thanks vgonis for the lightroom discussion. It helped with the easing of touch ups 🙂 Perhaps I should have cross processed it? I similarly have an expired 10 yr provia awaiting developing. Should I cross process this? Im just glad they didnt turn out blank!
FYI some lightroom editing which helped bring some contrast and detail were:
Luminance and saturation on the ‘blue color slider, adjusting blacks, highlights, contrast & shadow sliders were also helpful.
