Lectures and training on camera scanning by Peter Krogh, Oct 1–2, Tallinn, Estonia

For a second year in a row Estonian Photographic Heritage Society (MTÜ Eesti Fotopärand) is inviting an expert in digital imaging to Estonia from US – last year Don Williams gave a training on the issues of imaging quality, this time it is Peter Krogh who is coming to teach camera scanning.

Peter Krogh is a professional photographer, author, instructor, consultant and software designer. His book The DAM Book, Digital Asset Management for Photographers (O’Reilly) has helped photographers and collection managers worldwide get control over their image collections.

Cultural Heritage institutions around the world have gone to camera-based systems when scanning photographic material. These systems provide very high quality and speed at an excellent price point. This approach enables the institution to scan entire libraries of film and prints instead of small selections.

On the afternoon (from 1 PM to 5.30 PM) of Tuesday, October 1st, Peter will lecture on the camera scanning in the main auditorium of the Estonian Academy of Arts (Põhja pst 7, Tallinn). His presentation will outline the entire process of camera scanning: from system selection, through quality control and workflow.

Topics covered include:

  • How to choose the right camera and lens for your collection – megapixels, bit depth, form factor
  • How to choose the right hardware for your collection – bench system, rail systems, lens-attached systems
  • Workflow for each media type – transmissive positive, transmissive negative, reflective
  • FADGI compliance
  • Using targets to control quality and record scan characteristics
  • Software workflow – how to optimize speed and quality using Adobe Lightroom
  • Efficient capture and assignment of metadata
  • Tips and techniques for increasing throughput without sacrificing quality

On Wednesday, October 2nd, Peter Krogh gives a full-day practical training on camera scanning in the photo studio of the National Archives of Estonia film archive (Ristiku 84, Tallinn).

The lectures and training are meant for everybody interested in the digitization of old photographs and photo negatives. The practical training can only host 20 participants therefore priority is given to people from GLAMs.
