Our darkroom has 25 enlargers, which can print 4″x5″ negatives up to 16″x20″ prints. We have also been fortunate to receive a donation of 8×10 view camera equipment! Bealart is equipped with a photographic lighting studio with 4 Broncolor strobes and modifiers, backdrops and stands. For digital processing and output, we have three digital darkrooms, each with professional 13″x19″ colour ink jet printing capabilities.
