AuthorSubject: Ideal Workstation Setup   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Edward McCain
Posted on Tue Sep 16, 2003 4:54 PM

I'm setting up in my new studio after many years of waiting. I finally have my own space out of the house. It's not huge (725 sq ft + a garage with storage) but a nice size. I have a custom furnature builder who wants to work with me to create a workstation for my scanning and photoshop work and printing (the printer has it's own spot, connected by ethernet).

To give you an idea of how I use the equipment: I'm a commercial photographer shooting assignment work for magazines and advertising and some stock. I'm shooting both film and digital (Canon EOS 1Ds and EOS-3 system + Hasselblad, Horseman and Wista) I have a large stock file that I'm scanning and keyworking on and off. I also have started showing some of my photographs in galleries now and so am sometimes making fine art prints.

I'm wondering what kinds of setups work best for you experts? I currently have a Mac G4 with lots of internal storage and a LaCie 22" monitor. My scanner is an Imacon Precision III. I also have a G4 15-inch Titanium laptop that I use as a backup computer when I have an assistant or intern scanning or "dust-busting" on the desktop G4.

I'm thinking of creating a U-shaped two-workstation setup with the existing G4, monitor and Imacon in one corner (at one of the corners of the bottom of the U) and then getting another computer and monitor (or two, if I have the money) and other assorted goodies. What would you suggest and what considerations should I look at in terms of using the space well and getting the most functionality from the work area? Would it be better to have two separate spaces?Also, I do not have unlimited funds, and so want to make sure I get the most bang for my bucks (I won't be purchasing Barco monitors, etc.).
