4x5 Kodak Plus-X expiration: 1979

In my last post, I shared that a friend (Kristin) and I had a water photoshoot with another photographer (Chelsea) posing as our model. After a few photos of her being splashed with water, we decided to take her outside for some less chaotic portraits.  Wanting them to be awesome, I decided to bust out the 4x5 Crown Graphic! 4x5 CM

Having never had her photo taken on 4x5 sheet film, she was totally excited about the idea. Sitting her down I got my focus and loaded the camera with some Kodak Plus-X. The only thing that had me worried was that the film Had expired back in 1979.  In the end, I think the portrait came out great, I even added a wet plate look on top of it just for fun.

In my next post Ill talk a little more about my developing process, Ive tweaked it a bit from my last 4x5!
