Technical Photography Dr Antonino Cosentino, Cultural Heritage Science Open Source (CHSOS), 24th - 26th January 2018 at SRAL Studios

Overview
SRAL will host the CHSOS three day training workshop on ‘Practical Methods for Art Examination’. CHSOS serves an international audience of art professionals: conservators, art historians, and conservation scientists. Its technical innovations and strategies are being adopted by museums and cultural institutions worldwide. CHSOS disseminates this knowledge through the CHSOS website, publications, and training programmes.
CHSOS training programmes teach practical methods for Art Examination and Documentation. The modules illustrate imaging and spectroscopy methods regularly used by cultural heritage scientists and conservators for the scientific and forensic investigation of art objects.
All the training modules have hands-on activities and students practice with the CHSOS equipment.
The ideal audience is made of art and archaeology professionals: conservators, conservation scientists, art appraisers and fine art photography. No specific educational background is necessary. CHSOS courses are designed for a large audience ranging from art professionals to scientists.
A Technical Photography documentation consists of a collection of scientific images realised with a modified digital camera sensitive to the spectral range about 360-1000 nm. Each image provides just a bit of information but all together they represent the most practical and successful methodology to study art and archaeology.
