Types of documentation offered:

  • Normal light: captures image information, color and condition

  • Raking light: captures distortions in the support and surface texture

  • Specular light: captures surface texture and gloss

  • Transmitted light: captures watermarks, signatures on mounted prints, negatives

  • UV-Visible fluorescence: captures information about adhesives, pigments and stains

  • Reflected Infrared: captures information about underdrawing and materials

  • Infrared Luminescence: captures information about underdrawing and materials

  • Reflected UV: captures information about materials and condition

  • Scanning: captures image information, typically used for negatives

  • Microscopic imaging: captures details that may not be visible to the naked eye, aids in photographic process identification
