Shot on film: Shanghai GP3 | Plaubel Makina 67 | Nikkor 80/2.8

I found a three-pack of Lomo 100 BW film. They expired around 2010, and as far as I could tell, Lomography does not sell these films anymore. The earlier roll came back with almost no image, so I decided to try to shoot these as ISO 25 just for fun.

Lomography BW 100

Camera settings: Expired black and white (BW) film usually ages well, so I metered these as ISO 25 film, an addition of 2 stops of exposure. All were shot at 1/30s at f/2.8.

I did not even bother to venture outside, and just shot around my place for fun.

This roll turned out much better than the earlier roll, but it is still terrible. I think to use these films, I might have to shoot them as an ISO 3 film. (5 steps overexposure), but I am worried that the shadow will be destroyed. ISO 3 film is decent for landscape shots (on a tripod) or as outdoor portrait shots. However, the payoff is so low (and I do not really care to pay for development) that I have decided to use the last roll as a generic test roll.
