Domestic Violence Injury Documentation
This hands-on course provides training in the
photographic documentation of domestic violence injuries. Lighting and composition
techniques for photographing cuts, bruises,
swelling and other injuries typical of domestic
abuse will be examined. Many of these programs are hosted in cooperation with community domestic violence experts so that participants will be aware of local regulations.
Low Light Photography and Night Imaging
Accidents and criminal acts rarely occur
under ideal photographic conditions. In fact,
most police photographers list lighting as
their greatest technical challenge. This seminar examines on-camera flash techniques;
direct and bounce flash methods; painting
with light; fill flash; and using guide numbers
for optimal results.
Auto Theft Investigation Photography
This seminar covers the lighting and
composition techniques required to photograph one
of the most challenging photographic subjects
— the automobile. Learn the lighting and
composition techniques needed to produce
high quality, detailed photos, as well as
camera and film selection techniques and
troubleshooting.
Cargo Theft Investigation
This program examines graffiti’s impact on
society from a law enforcement point of view.
This seminar examines what to document
when investigating cargo theft. It covers the
use of instant photography to recover stolen
freight and documentation of recovered
freight to assist in criminal prosecution.
