Announcing The New Photography Studio!

After months of hard work, collecting resources, and trial and error we are happy to finally announce that our new photography studio is in full swing! Taking advantage of space near our offices, which offered a little more room and controllable light, we slowly began to piece together a studio equipped for our growing digitization needs.

With a range of different set-ups and accessories including macro lenses, softbox lights, anti-reflective glass, and a rail mount we are now able to digitize just about anything! In the past few months, during which we have been working to streamline our photography process, we have already digitized an oversized newspaper collection, a set of almost 200 artist books, and over 6,000 slides from AGSL's Harrison Forman and Eugene Harris Collections. Utilizing our 50 megapixel camera, a camera-to-computer tethering system, and real time live view controls we are now able to digitize collections with better quality and speed than ever before. The number of possibilities this studio can offer have just begun to be explored.
