Route 66
17 18 19 February 2013

These are snaps from Dave Wyman's trip to Route 66.

I shot my Fuji X-E1, Fuji 18-55mm and Fuji 14mm f/2.8, and that was it. ALL IMAGES WERE SHOT HAND-HELD.

I shot my X-E1 in 3:2 MEDIUM NORMAL JPG, AUTO White Balance, Auto 6,400 ISO, AUTO Dynamic Range (which increases ISO to 400 or 800, even in daylight, to retain detail in highlights), Professional (a.k.a. Program) mode, and +2 HIGH color. Many of my shots were in the square 1:1 crop, LARGE NORMAL JPG.

I used iView Media Pro 3.1.3 to identify and losslessly rotate all my JPGs. I then sorted the images in Phase One Media Pro. I would have rotated the images in Phase One Media Pro, but it's pretty flaky doing rotations, so I've given up and now do it in iView Media Pro 3.1.3 first.Once selected, I formatted the images them for publication in Photoshop CS6. Most shots were processed with the Perfectly Clear plug-in at its default settings. The colors you see here are what came out of the X100 as JPG and clicked-through the Perfectly Clear plug-in, no fiddling needed.

Since the Fuji X-E1 has poor color rendition, most of the prints were split-toned in black-and-white. Sometimes I used a black-and-white adjustment layer in Photoshop CS6 to optimize the monochrome conversion to most often duplicate an orange filter by lowering the contribution of blue.

I then created these pages and uploaded it all in Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 from 2006 on Mac OS 10.6.8.
