This is a one day course designed to provide an introduction to digital photography, camera operations and basic scene photography. This course will help students understand camera functions in order to create crisp, clear digital images. For crime scene photography we will focus on depth of field, overall, mid-range and close-up photography. We will also look at techniques for low-light and laser photography.
Students are encouraged but not required to bring a DSLR camera, tripod and any other agency issued equipment.
Students will be able to employ best practices in crime scene photography, as they investigate any crime from its beginning to its eventual disposition; either as an individual or as part of an investigatory team.
