Who says film is dead? Actually, its close. Film is sitting on shelves for so long that it expires. I don’t let it go to waste though! I decided to shoot a few roles of expired film through my Canon EOS 1N camera on New Years, a nice way to greet the new year. In an era where cameras with 60MP sensors have a commercial price tag, I’ll ring in the new year with black & white film:

The film didn’t turn out too bad, though the colour roll was a little discoloured and difficult to correct. We had a great evening, tons of games, jokes, laughs and wonderful memories. Brent, Steve and Lorraine came to visit, and joined with Desi and I, Karryna and Kevin, and Mom and Walter. Great company, and a great evening even into the new year (and seconds before):

Check through the gallery and let me know what you think! Film certainly has a different feel than digital. I used a special scanning technique that does multiple exposures of the negatives. How do you think it turned out?

I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope everyone achieves the goals they have set for themselves this year. 🙂

    Nice black and white pictures Don. You got some great expression shots of Walter.

    My Favorite photo is the black and white of Karryna and Desi looking over your adventure photo album.

    Love Mom and Walter

    Hi to everyone

    My favorite is the B&W of the rose. Looking at a rose, or smelling one ,is like a piece of heaven. But is sure is also wonderful to see all of you having a great time. Life can be so beautiful at times like this. Love to all.
