CVaultsPhoto Lab
Photo Lab

A special emphasis in our photo lab is placed upon manual analogue photo printing, both black-and-white and color (C-print), in large formats (up to 182 mm wide). Alternative technologies are also available to users, such as cyanotype, photogram, ambrotype, and others. Among our equipment are Epson inkjet printer for digital large-format printing and a test light system which helps to achieve the most accurate colour rendering results. The workshop is also equipped with everything necessary for developing photographic films of any format, as well as scanning and digital processing of files.
