As part of a process that would later be used in The Kaigan and other photography related activities, The Photo Lab was the first time a workflow was specifically developed for editing speed and precision.
A great deal of effort was put into researching not only the workflow, but also the specific computer and monitor setup. All monitors used for Photo Lab orders are on 10-bit panels that can accurately display over 1.07 Billion colored (compared to 14 million on conventional monitors). They are then calibrated once per month and set to detect ambient light changes every 30 seconds while operating. The effective accuracy is 99% of the expanded Adobe RGB color gamut, and 100% traditional sRGB.
Software used in the workflow is actually quite basic: Just Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop CC. Multiple monitors are used, but beyond that it’s in how you setup and use the applications together to speed things up.
In a single day, our team can easily edit upwards of 1,000 photos in RAW if needed. For our current clientele this is more than enough to meet demand.
