There’s Gold In Them Thar Hills – Shooting Expired Kodak Gold Film

Took a roll of 10-year-old Kodak Gold 200 up to Mt. Wachusett a few weekends ago. 2006 feet up. While by no means the best color negative film I’ve used, not bad either. Minor adjustments here in Photoshop for saturation, and highlights. These were shot with the F2S, 28mm AiS prime lens, and in a noted example, a Tiffen Skylight Filter.

The film has nice colors, but does not seem to be particularly sharp. It certainly lacks the sharpness and latitude that, say, Portra has. But then again, for a box of film that has been on the shelf and in the fridge for 10 years, thrilled with the results. Not a bad way to get back to some color.
