I shot this with Kodak HIE (infrared) film, using a #25 red filter. Hand colored with photo oils and pencils.
There's no substitute for good storage, you're right. Film that's stored in the fridge or freezer can be used many years past its expiration date. I know photogs who really like to push that envelope!I had film in my freezer forever it seemed and it still worked. I've had Polaroid and even the newer Impossible film and those worked after I don't know how many years. Decades I think. As well as Kodachrome, echtachrome (sp?), etc.
