Expired color film purchased at the dollar store
I love taking pictures with film cameras. There is something about it that makes it more fun than shooting with a digital camera. I find it exciting to wait and wonder what the images will look like while they being developed, instead of the instant gratification of looking at the back of a digital camera.
Recently, I read an online article from a film photography enthusiast about finding film at the dollar store. It made perfect sense because film is on its way out and digital has already taken over. Nowadays, most people have a camera phone or digital camera. So who needs film? I do. Shortly after reading that article I went to multiple dollar stores in Las Vegas but only found one selling film. It was located right next to the cassette and VHS tapes. I looked around to see if they sold vinyl records too, but no luck. Just kidding.
I purchased the last 18 rolls they had. All of them were expired, but that was fine with me. Film has a "process before" date marked on the box. Processing film after that date can give you odd color shifts, increased grain, and unpredictable results.
