Christian Mounger: 2010-11 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

In the Spring of 2011, I received a Faculty Development Grant to purchase an Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner and a Canon EOS slr D7 digital camera.

I requested the professional scanner to digitize 25+ years of analog photographs of my personal work and to help catalog my extensive collection of vintage photographic images including early processes that are difficult to document. I requested the digital camera because I no longer believe shooting with film is practical and cost-effective; in order to continue my studio practice as a photographer, I needed to up-grade to a camera capable of producing images worthy of gallery presentation, as well as one that could support my teaching activities.
