5 Frames With… #23: Agfa Scala 200X (EI 200 / 35mm) by Sina Farhat

My five frames were shot with a roll of expired 35mm Agfa Scala 200X at ISO 100. The gear I used was a Canon F1n and a Canon 35mm f/2.8 FD lens and the film was developed in D76 stock for 9.5 minutes. When I loaded the roll in my camera I decided that to do my usual walk around and capture the activity around my city, as it turned out I could have never predicted the end result! On the day I developed the roll I took it out of the tank after the last wash and looked at the result, the frames looked odd and it looked like there were Viking warriors fighting, I tried to understand where they came from but I could not remember seeing any Vikings fighting on that day. After digitizing the frames I realized what had happened, this was an accidental double exposure roll and I figured that the person that gave me the roll had forgotten that he/she already exposed it and didn’t develop it! The great news is that wherever I shared the images people have been very impressed by the images and that is really rewarding for me. Here are the results!

An expired love affair aka why I shoot expired film – by Sina Farhat

I’d like to tell you a story. Well, my story about why I use expired film.  The short version is that I have created some of my best images using expired film, and will continue to do so for a long time! The longer version continues below… My story began in 2009 when I was given my father’s old Canon A-1 SLR, along with a couple of lenses. In the past he worked as a photographer and decided to keep his old gear for a day when it would be used again. He also saved a lot of great expired 35mm film...
