bring their camera and their questions.  The differences in digital
photograph documentation will be discussed and the tools necessary
to ensure the preservation of digital files will be taught.  Topics
such as which targets to use, how to make a white balance, lighting,
file format and stitching together images will be presented and
during practicals, participants will have time to make photograph
documentation of various objects and learn the basics of software
such as Adobe Photoshop.
