To enable the enhancement of our digital photography platform: specifically, the purchase of four high-end digital single-lens-reflex cameras, twelve lesser digital cameras, a laptop with and software capable of working with large digital files, and various supplementary hardware and software.
This equipment would expand the Thinkfinity platform by:
1) Exposing both Pace University students and faculty to the most up-to-date technology available, the same equipment used by professional photographers both in the contemporary fine arts and commercial fields.
2) Create an interdisciplinary informatics platform at Pace University.
3) Allowing the Fine Arts Department to create programs that introduce K-12 students to digital photography through creative teaching and community engagement.
