Reflectance Transformation Imaging
Kathryn Piquette from the University of Cologne will be at Digital Past 2015 to speak and host a workshop on Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI).  This advanced photographic technique provides high resolution documentation of surfaces/objects and enables the user to virtually relight and artificially enhance faint marks and other features, for example increasing the legibility of inscriptions on a variety of materials such as papyrus, clay or stone and thus aiding understanding for both archaeological and conservation purposes.

 A topic of great interest to anyone working with heritage objects, including archaeologists, historians, librarians, museums curators, conservators and photographers.
