Shooting expired film is tricky business.  You can read all sorts of theories on the internet of the best ways to go about it.  The most common suggestion is to over expose your images.  You can find people that go by the rule of +1 stop for every decade over the expiration date.  I have never really followed any specific advice other than to over expose by a single stop and go from there.  The latitude that you have when scanning in an image and processing the negative digitally really takes the guess work out of the shooting.  In the end its all a guessing game.  It's about the fun of getting out and shooting & the joy of seeing the results.  The following shots are from a couple of expired rolls of 200 speed color film and C-41 processed at home.
