It will be quite a hard sell trying to visualize the outcome of your shots with expired films, just be ready to expect the unexpected. Expired films may be fogged, have decreased sensitivity and contrast, increased grain, color shifts, and reduced saturation that may range from muted colors to extreme desaturation affecting a specific color.

No two rolls of expired film will produce the same results either, as each degrades and warps differently. Even so, expired films can still surprise you with unexpected imaginary. Color shifts, foggy and fuzzy images lacking in sharpness, may provide a vision of the surreal, an option you may not get at all with fresh and current films.

Give yourself a go and you may end up on a high. Sourcing for stocks of expired film, however, may not be easy, as they are not as easily available as expected.
