5 Frames With… Agfa Scala 200X (EI 200 / 35mm / Canon F1n) 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 Kodak 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!
