Theoretical/practical workshop on the photographic digitisation of works of art in super high-resolution (gigapixels)

La ventana digital - taller

 

Super high-resolution images of works of art have a unique impact. They make it possible to transform art into a personal and interactive experience that takes the user beyond what they can see with the naked eye. The participants of this workshop will learn first-hand how obtaining high-resolution digitalisations of works of art can be an easy and quick as well as a fascinating process.
