About the photography: The Lewis and Clark Trail Photography files consist mainly of 35mm slides. There is a small amount of 4x5's and a growing file of medium format 645 images.
These images represent areas along the actual route of Lewis and Clark. The goal has been to present the trail as close as possible to what the explorers might have seen. Obviously an impossible task, but through some research and a little leg work we can get close to recording some sense of the story and do it without cheating shots. So unless noted, the shots here are on, next to, or in sight of the actual trail.
Computer preview of images: Please consider that these images are scanned and placed on the web and are subject to probably some of the worst viewing conditions possible, the monitor. I try to be as accurate as possible and I edit hard so you can be assured that the images will be of reproduction quality. I can send digital files or originals. Drum scans are available, they can be burned to CD and snail mailed or emailed. This site was built at a resolution of 800x600.
Tech stuff: I use Canon's auftofocus camera system and Mamiya medium format. A Gitzo tripod, Arca Swiss Ballhead, Lowe Pro Bags and Pelican cases. For films I have used Fuji Velvia, Kodak Kodachrome, Kodak B&W, Konica 750 (psuedo infrared). Currently I am shooting Fuji Provia 100, Kodak 100S, a little Kodak 100VS. I use Adobe Photoshop exclusively for digital imaging. I use some Epson products and currently print on a Canon printer.
