The Photography area consists one large communal digital photography lab and classroom with 16 Macintosh workstations, numerous professional-grade Epson flatbed scanners and inkjet printers, and one Nikon 4000 dedicated film scanner – all precisely calibrated to maintain consistent color throughout the entire digital workflow. Dimmable, daylight–balanced lighting and a professional print viewer ensure accurate viewing of color prints. Two wide-format Epson printers provide printing capability up to 44” x 90”.
There is an additional Advanced Photo digital lab for critical, high-resolution film scanning as well as daylight-balanced lighting for critical print viewing and print finishing. This smaller lab is equipped with Wacom tablets, a Hasselblad Flextight X1 film scanner, and a Nikon 9000 film scanner.
In addition to the digital photo facilities, there are three black-and-white labs dedicated to processing gelatin silver film and prints, with Omega enlargers capable of printing up to 4x5” film at 20”x24.” There is also an individual color/black-and-white enlarging room for printing film up to 8”x10.” A large film processing area provides automatic temperature control, filtered water, and numerous chemicals for processing a wide range of films.
An adjacent dedicated Nonsilver Room with UV exposure units up to 30” X 48” provides students with the working space and chemistry necessary to explore a wide range of alternative, experimental, and traditional 19th-century photographic and cross-disciplinary processes.
