I was attempting to write a list of all the various single rolls of expired film I have stored in my fridge last week and when all done I realised that I had 6 rolls of Superia 100.
I love shooting Superia 400 but I don’t remember shooting much 100 before so as it was a pretty nice day I loaded up my F100 equiped with the 50mm f1.4 and set out with the idea of shooting as much as I could close to wide open as the light/exposure would allow.
I rated the film at iso 50 and some of the backlit frames I increased the exposure by another stop too.
The film didn’t disappoint the colours were really nice and the fine grain compared to 400 was also good especially in the out of focus areas.
I am not sure what it would have looked like if I had not pulled the film probably quite muddy in fact a few of the images that were taken in flat or shadowy light did look under exposed even when 1 stop over.
At least I know that when I shoot the rest of the rolls that it needs pulling by a minimum of 2 stops as the film took it well.
Thanks for looking…..
