Distressed Photography - Shoot Your Images on Vintage, Expired Film Stocks!
Blog by Michael Raso
I always say…If you want it to look old, use vintage gear and, generally speaking, that theory works.
Image #1: I shot Jasmine on my 1986 Canon T90 35mm camera using expired tungsten slide film - then printed the image on Polaroid (expired ‘98) 108 instant color film. Session art directed by Paige Davis.
Images #2/3: I shot John and Dane (of The Smoove Sailors http://www.thesmoovesailors.com/ ) on my 1966 Canon FT 35mm camera with Eastman Fine Grain 5302 BW film (expired March 1972). I home-processed (poorly) in what’s known as Caffenol. (Using instant coffee as the developer)
Image #4: Sarina - Sometimes fresh film will suffice but your choice of camera will make your image.This image was shot on Lomography’s new lo-fi LomoKino 35mm movie camera on Kodak Portra 800. Session art directed by Paige Davis.
