Epic fail, or just epic

52 rolls

Over the last month or so, I have occasionally taken large format photographs using expired Provia 100, but put them aside to develop later.

This morning when I warmed the chemicals, I noticed that the First Developer had changed to an opaque greenish colour, and might have passed its use by date.

Regardless I pressed on, and the results are either an epic fail, or just epic.

Colours enough to do your head in?

After a little fiddling I converted the photos into black and white using Aperture with the blue filter effect.

All photos taken with Chamonix 045F1, using either Rodenstock Apo-Sironar-S 150mm (photos 1 & 4) or Nikkor-SW 90mm f/8 (photos 3 & 4), on expired Provia 100 and developed in Tetenal E Colortec.
