The Keoughs and their printer partner, Hemlock Printing Ltd., Burnaby, British Columbia, labored for four months in the prepress department. There they scanned slides, toiled over separations, and painstakingly color- and contrast-corrected the art with Adobe Photoshop.
The customized prepress room combined Hemlock's state-of-the-art scanning and proofing technology with legacy 35mm projectors and screens. "When we saw the first proof scans, we were appalled," Rosemarie says. "Then we realized that 5000o Kelvin is not what we use to look at our slides. A projector bulb is around 3000 degrees [Kelvin]."
