To fill the gaps left by the recent cancellation of face-to-face training and events AMaGA Victoria is working in partnership with the National Office to provide a series of online webinars, workshops and tutorials. We are in the process of converting  previously scheduled in person events to digital platforms, whilst introducing a series of more responsive events. All events will be added to this page as they are confirmed.

Whilst the AMaGA Vic team is working remotely, we  are contactable via email. If you have any events / PD questions, concerns or requests please email cmallard@amagavic.org.au.

For any questions regarding Victorian Collections workshops please contact: admin@victoriancollections.net.au

VC Photography workshop

Digitisation workshop [Past Event]

Tue 25 Feb, 10:00 am - 3:00 am

Capturing high-quality images of your catalogue records serve as a digital preservation copy of our collections while also allowing for increased public access and decreased physical handling. 

This workshop will provide you with an opportunity to work one-on-one to learn the basics of museum photography such as camera settings and operations, lighting, and image composition for 2D and 3D items.

You will also have the opportunity to use a scanner - negatives and transparencies can be digitised - to learn about digitisation standards.

Please note that participants are required to bring a maximum of two collection items.  

You are also invited to bring a camera - ideally one that will continue to be used for their organisation's digitisation.
