Archiving Digital Photography Workshop

PLEASE NOTE NEW ADDRESS: This program will be hosted at The George Washington University Museum / The Textile Museum.
Using examples from the extensive analog collections of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., as well as more recent digital accessions, this workshop will offer tips on how to organize your digital photography files; best practices for digital storage; and strategies for compiling the documentation necessary to make your contemporary photography work a possible resource for your descendants, future historians, and repositories such as the Historical Society.
Advance registration and ticket purchase recommended. Onsite registration is subject to availability.
This workshop is part of the Street Photography Series, a slate of instructional workshops and historic walking tours covering all eight of D.C.’s wards. This series is designed to encourage active documentation of contemporary Washington, D.C. with a historical context, and culminates with the Spring 2017 For the Record exhibition at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Thank you to our partners at The George Washington University Museum / The Textile Museum for supporting this program!
