This course, completely updated in 2020, will teach you how to photographically document visually observable evidence when conditions or situations are less than ideal.
We will show you how to use advanced lighting techniques such as existing light, spot lights, bench top lighting, umbrella lighting and forensic light source systems to record your evidence. The various macro/close-up settings of your camera will be used to give you “hands-on” practice in photographing footwear, bullet holes, projectiles, shell casings and laser trajectory as well as fingerprint evidence in both daylight and nighttime conditions.
You will employ alternate light sources to photograph luminescent fingerprints and other chemically developed fluorescent evidence and you will be given the opportunity to record the luminol reaction with existing light photography. Specialized lighting techniques for documenting difficult to record physical evidence such as glass and other highly reflective surfaces will be discussed as practiced.
The photographs you take during the course will be reviewed by the instructor who will aid you in reconciling any challenges you encountered.
