audubon aquarium of the americas

I’ve been trying to find indoor shoots for the meetup group, for obvious reasons. This was supposed to be last month’s, but no one was able to go. The aquarium in New Orleans is no Monterey Bay or Steinhart, but it’s a good way to spend an afternoon.

Some of these were taken with Kodak Portra 400VC, which I recently found out has been discontinued. “VC” stood for “vivid color”, as opposed to “NC” or “natural color”, which has also been discontinued. Kodak merged both into one film, so basically now there’s only one choice that’s too dull to be vibrant, and too bright to make good portraits. Don’t you love it when giant corporations mess with something that was already perfect and wind up with something no one wants to use?
