Wikimedia UK hosted a photography training session by User:Geni on the 10 December 2013.

Participants learned some tips for taking good photographs of objects in Museums.

This was intended for people who already have experience of uploading photographs to Wikimedia Commons but want some tips for handling common problems such as reflections from glass display cases.

User Geni also told us about some of the Photographic equipment that we have available to for volunteers to borrow.

User Deskana then told us about the new Crop tool on Commons.
