Our facilities include a darkroom with approximately nine enlargers that run the range from 35mm to 4 x 5. Some are condenser enlargers and a color diffusion head. All have attached timers. We also have a huge stainless steel sink, numerous developing tanks and trays and storage lockers. When using the darkroom you will be required to supply your own paper and chemistry.
Adjoining the darkroom we have a finishing room which includes a large light table, a dry mount press, a mat cutter and numerous paper cutters. When using the finishing room you will be required to supply your own mat paper, dry mount tissue or film.
We also have a photographic studio of approximately 1,100 square feet, equipped with eight studio strobe units, numerous and varied tungsten lighting units, numerous and varied light stands and a variety of backdrops ranging from a couple of large muslin backdrops to seamless paper in various colors. Other equipment includes a flash meter and various reflectors, umbrellas and props. We occasionally supply models but never film or flash cord to hot shoe adapters. Members wishing to use the studio must be checked out by the Studio Group leader.
In the studio we also have a computer system for scanning and digital image manipulation available to members who have gone through a computer orientation session with the Digital Group leader.
