so i had an experience with expired (in 1991) fujichrome 50, and all the shots look overexposed by one-twe stops. after some research i found out that:

Negative films fog darker with age (or temperature), as grains get thermally, chemically, or cosmic ray exposed. Negative films have a large exposure latitude, so you can increase exposure to get above the fog.

Reversal films fog lighter with age. That is why photos may look overexposed. But they don’t have the large exposure latitude, so you can’t increase exposure to get above the fog. You are squeezed between fog and the top of the curve.

lori, fioletovo, may 2013, kodak cft, mamiya-ze2 with 50mm f1.7 lens. i have no idea why i did not publish this photo before. may be i did not consider it to be good enough for publishing back then, and now my taste has changed and i can appreciate it more.

good morning. i decided to publish some very old shots. this one was never published. i also find myself liking the quality of the lab scanner, which i did not like before. i guess i’ll publish today several photos, unedited, out of scanner files.
