Photo Image Making Studio

Our studio production facilities include a Mac-based computer lab with multiple work stations, as well as Epson scanning equipment and inkjet printers.  Photo students can also access department computer labs for work on other Mac and PC format computers as needed to complete projects.  We have two darkrooms available for enrolled students.  A 10-station darkroom is dedicated to 35mm format and ART 230 instruction.  Intermediate and advanced classes can access a 12-station darkroom that can accommodate enlargement work from 35mm to 8”x10” film formats.  In addition to our inkjet printing for color imagery, we have a 31-inch continuous-feed RA-4 processor that offers color print enlarging capacity up to 30”x40” from any film format up to 8”x10”, fed through a 2-station color enlarger darkroom.   The facility is completed by a large print finishing area that includes mounting and matting equipment.
