This workshop takes place online as part of the Sustainable Heritage Bidecennial Conference and will introduce participants to the field of imaging applications in the study and management of heritage. The focus will be placed on developing skills for the use of photogrammetry in heritage - specifically through studying the process of creating a 3D model of a museum object from start to finish using basic photogrammetry equipment.
Workshop participants will gain insight into the photogrammetric process, understand what is achievable with basic equipment, and become more aware of the requirements of 3D digitisation of museum objects and how these might differ from everyday objects.
Kira Zumkley has been working in the heritage sector for over 10 years both as an archaeologist, photographer, and researcher. She is the Chair of the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography and Honorary Lecturer at the Centre for Digital Humanities at University College London. In addition, she is currently working as a researcher on a joint project between the Victoria and Albert Museum, University of Brighton and University College London. Prior to moving into academia, Kira worked as the photography manager at the Science Museum Group and carried out her own creative photography practices focusing on the contrasting experiences of urban and natural spaces.
Adam Gibson is Professor of Heritage Science at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage. His group applies imaging techniques to aspects of heritage, predominantly multispectral and hyperspectral imaging. His work has looked, among other things, at painting analysis and feature recovery in historical documents.
