3 day workshop from Melbourne Museums

Lakes Entrance Historical Society was pleased to welcome Melbourne Museum’s Maxine Holden for a three-day workshop, as part of the Australian Museums & Galleries Association’s collections digitisation program.

Members had a lot of fun learning how to photograph items in the Society’s collection to museum standard.

Learning how to best place an object or drape an item of clothing, then adjust the lighting to ensure no shadow, is a skill members were keen to learn.

How to scan glass slides, negatives and old Kodachrome slides was also covered during the three days of intensive training.

The test now will be putting all this knowledge to work and get the Society’s catalogue up to date.
