Course description:

    Digital Imaging for Conservators and Museum Professionals
    teaches how to use digital photography to document the
    conservation process, and how to create photographic images to
    document objects and collections. Participants will learn to
    produce and archive conservation documentation images as well as
    operate a digital SLR (dSLR) camera. The emphasis will be on
    creating images using dSLR cameras, image processing in Adobe
    Photoshop, and image archiving using best practices.


    Dawn Heller is a seasoned educator in the conservation field who
    also practices in the private sector. She is a co-author of the
    book on which this workshop is based, the award winning AIC
    Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation
    (2008; second edition forthcoming in 2011), published by the
    American Institute of Conservation.

Workshops will be a combination of one-on-one direction, small group
collaboration, classroom instruction, and computer lab work. The
focus will be on extensive hands-on camera work and image processing
fundamentals, including color management. Participant interest will
also drive the activity, and will help determine course emphasis.
