Saturday 7 June, 11am to 3pm, Slingsby churchyard, Specialist photography session, .
Dr Gareth Beale, of the Centre for Digital Heritage at the University of York, will run a training session on using innovative digital photographic techniques to record gravestones, monuments and other church and churchyard memorials. (Coffee and biscuits will be provided. Bring a sandwich for lunch.)
The workshop will demonstrate how to use RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging), a photographic technique which can be used to document grave stones and other carved stone objects. RTI requires minimal equipment and the software which it requires is free to download. The technique is used by researchers in a variety of field as well as many local history and archaeology groups.
