Photography Labs

ArtCenter’s state of the art photography labs enable students to print, process, scan and finish any image they conceive.

The Digital Imaging Lab is equipped with workstations for high-resolution scanning. Hasselblad scanners, digital printing from desktop to wide format, and manipulation are available. A film recorder enables digital files to be output as black-and-white or color film in any format up to 4" x 5". The photography labs house Inkjet and Chromira printers that allow students to print gallery-quality images.

The Black-and-White Photography Lab features large darkrooms for normal and alternative processing techniques. The lab is equipped with manual deep tank and automated film processing, a Kreonite print processor and enlarging capability for all film formats from 35 mm to 8" x 10". A communal darkroom offers 40 enlarging stations, supplemented by private printing rooms.

The Color Photography Lab offers automated processing for E-6 and C-41. A programmable Wing-Lynch and C-41 handline is available for experimental color processing. Color enlargements are made with De Vere 4" x 5" and 8" x 10" enlargers in private printing rooms. The digital lab has more than 20 up-to-date Apple computers with current adobe software for image manipulation. The room is color-balanced for ideal print quality control.
