    Kodak Portra160VC - not just for people

    It's rare when you get enough light at a zoo to use Portra 160, but when you do, man, this is beautiful stuff...

    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    It's shot on 35mm, with a Canon T90. The lens was Canon's 35-105 f4 lens, one of the better zoom lenses ever made.

    I have to say that is impressive detail for a print film. I never seem to get as good a results when I shoot color. The last batch of Kodachrome I shot was rather unsharp. I think it must be because I scan the film with a cheap (Epson V500) scanner. In B&W, I get way better results by scanning even small analog prints than I do by scanning the film directly. I should get into RA4, or at least start having my stuff processed by a competent lab.

    I't's a fabulous shot with what seems to me to be very true colours. With a 105 and with the tiger filling the shot like this, I think you must have been quite close. How far away were you and what separates you from being the tiger's next meal!

    The tiger is behind glass. Fortunately, the glass was clean where I shot from, which is partly due to me being 6'2". The area lower, where all the kids are, was much too dirty to shoot through.

    Thanks Ah yes glass I hadn't thought of that. I hope that he/she has a really big enclosure behind the glass. In the U.K. we used to keep them in 30-40 ft cages and then parade them around a circus ring. The cages at zoos were a little better but not much. The dark ages were chillingly quite recently.
