Advanced Crime Scene Photography : 2E
The ability to thoroughly and accurately photograph a crime scene is a mandate for all investigators, regardless of the time of day, weather conditions, and/or confines in which a piece of evidence is concealed. Evidence is commonly found in some of the most difficult to access and photograph locations, so possessing the knowledge and skills necessary to photograph evidence in less than accommodating environments is essential.
Advanced Crime Scene Photography, Second Edition seamlessly integrates basic photography principles with corresponding applications in crime scene photography. Providing tips on creating compelling photos on a limited budget, it demonstrates how to photograph impressions, tool and bite marks, and bloodstain patterns. It also examines nighttime, low-light, and flash photography; painting with light techniques; the photography of Luminol reactions; laser trajectories; and ultraviolet and infrared light photography.
New topics include a chapter on fire investigations, addressing the common challenges faced by fire investigators and a variety of solutions to solve those challenges. This edition provides test questions at the end of each chapter and photography assignments. More than 130 illustrations enhance the text.
