Moyse's Hall Museum
Sarah Holmes (Volunteer, Bishops Stortford Museum, and Freelance Photographer)
Please note: this course has been organised by Suffolk’s Museum Development Manager for new museum trainees in the county. Please be aware that as such, the course will be aimed at new starters in the museum sector – or those wanting to refresh their skills and knowledge. The majority of places have already been allocated to trainees, but we are very pleased to be able to offer the remaining few places to the wider SHARE community.
This practical training will cover the basics of collections photography – including why we need to photograph objects and what we need to capture. It will include technical equipment knowledge, the care of objects whilst photographing, lighting an object and problem solving.
Sarah Holmes is a professional photographer and museum volunteer at Bishops Stortford, hence this terrific SHARE offer from them.
- be able to identify what to consider when setting up an area to take photographs of their object
- understand some of the key settings on digital cameras that will enable them to take better photographs
- understand how to light objects effectively
- know how to deal with more problematic objects/lighting
Important Note: Participants will need to bring the cameras they use at their own museum and where possible the instruction manual. Cameras will need to have fully charged batteries and cleared memory cards.
Morning refreshments will be provided, but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This event is fully booked.
