I bought this very old black and white AGFAPAN 25, it expired in January 1978. I shot it at box speed with my Nikon FE. But when I got it developed I pushed it 1 stop.
The film came back very dark – I should properly have shot it as an ISO 6 film (+2 stops) – but I was able to pull out a lot of info in the dark areas.
Here’s a SOOC photo, it’s only been scanned on an Epson V700 using Vuescan with no adjustment settings (as I do all my scans)
And here’s the result after a few quick adjustments in Lightroom.
I really like the looks you can get by using old film, there is something really unique about it.
I admit that sometimes the grittiness can get a bit too much, but when it’s just right, it really is amazing to look at.
Here are a few more for that roll. All with the same LR adjustments as above.
