This research project provides the students with practical experience in the management of a fine art photography lab and darkroom. The students will learn how to mix and store photographic chemistry, provide assistance to undergraduate and graduate photography students, and generate ideas for improvements to the lab. The students will contribute to the revision of a lab manual that specifies best practices and operating procedures for photography lab monitors. The students will also assist other students with digital printing, as needed. Additionally, the student will improve his/her knowledge of various analog and digital photographic processes through selfdirected research with the goal of helping other students learn how to further develop and understand their work.
