This workshop will introduce participants to issues with working with images and visual material, photographic method, practical skills in photography and photogrammetry (production of 3D models from photographs), and discussion of a few more advanced imaging techniques used in cultural heritage and manuscript imaging.

13.00-14.30 Working with images in theory and practice (Jacqueline Hargreaves) This session addresses the development of skills in image-related research, including art works, literary texts, and organising exhibitions.

14.30-16.00 Working on photography (Theresa Mikuriya, University of West London) In this session, we will explore the difficulty of the photographic medium and what Roland Barthes in Camera Lucida calls the "madness of the Photograph”.

16.00 Tea break

16.30 3-D Printing and photogrammetry (Gabriel Bodard, ICS)

For this hands-on session, we will demonstrate the principles of photogrammetry, the production of a 3D model from many images of an object from every possible angle, using the Metashape software. You will need your own photographic device (smartphone/tablet or camera) in order to participate fully.  

* Please note that the last session on photogrammetry is capped at 16 participants: please register with Kremena Velinova (kremena.velinova@sas. ac.uk)
