Fundamentals of Forensic Imaging & Crime Scene Photography

Police Need Apply

In day-to-day police work, photography is one of the most important methods of evidence collection. The use of photography accurately documents the conditions and circumstances at the scene and the location of traces. The goal is to permanently capture the objective situation in which objects, individuals, and traces have been found. This may be the case at a traffic accident, a burglary into a garden shed, or upon finding a lifeless person. This course is aimed at police officers who have been on patrol duty for a relatively short time, are new to the crime scene team, or simply want to refresh their knowledge of photography. Our course is taught by experienced Crime Scene Investigators.

Advanced Forensic Imaging

Advanced Forensic Imaging & Crime Scene Photography

Beyond the Basics Part 1

One of the most relevant aspects of forensic photography is the understanding of light and its manipulation to reveal and document even the faintest of evidence. This requires an in-depth understanding of various lighting techniques, which can drastically affect the quality and effectiveness of crime scene photos.

"The camera in most types of photography is irrelevant. It's about light ..."

Multispectral Imaging

Multispectral Imaging

The British Museum’s Charisma Workflow Part 1

Multispectral photography has a long-standing history within the field of photography. However, digital photography has introduced possibilities that were previously non-existent. The advancement of live-view function on digital cameras allows the object under examination to be observed in a specific spectral range, enabling precise focus adjustment. This, coupled with the substantial increase in resolution and colour rendition offered by modern cameras, facilitates the application of this technique more efficiently and with higher quality to forensic queries than ever before.

3D Imaging

3D Imaging

Structure From Motion

Structure from Motion (SfM) is emerging as one of the most integral methodologies for the assessment and documentation of crime scenes in the future. This technique, firmly rooted in the principles of measurement science, converts a sequence of accurately captured photographs into intricate 3D models. This facilitates a retrospective journey back to the crime scene’s original state, at any given moment.

Uncover The Hidden Details

It can often be challenging to capture all the important features of an object in one photo. Unlike regular photos, Reflectance Transformation Imaging, RTI, lets you create photos of an object where you can change how the light shines on it. This method helps you to closely examine the object’s surface in a digital format, revealing hidden details that you might not notice with our own eye, on a regular photo.

Injury Documentation Course

Injury Documentation

Using Cross Polarisation

One of the most important aspects in investigations related to cases of assault, domestic violence, and sexual offences is the accurate and meaningful documentation of the victim's injuries. Hematomas or bruises play a significant role in this regard, as they result from majority of the perpetrator's typical actions (punches, kicks, blunt force with objects, strangulation, bites). However, hematomas pose a particular challenge in photographic documentation. Due to the natural sheen of the skin, the representation of hematomas in photos taken with conventional flash can suffer a loss of contrast and visibility. This can be especially problematic for faint or older hematomas, where parts of the hematoma may no longer be visible in the image, thus risking the loss of crucial evidence. This course addresses this issue and demonstrates how cross-polarisation can ensure the best possible documentation of hematomas.

Computational Photography

A critical view on automated image processing on mobile devices

No other area of digital photography has evolved rapidly in recent years as the camera technology in mobile devices. This technology offers impressive quality at the touch of a button. As a logical consequence of this development, smart devices are increasingly being considered for police use, particularly in the field of forensic evidence gathering. But how were these significant quality leaps in smartphone cameras technically possible, despite image sensors and lens technology changing little over the years? And what implications does the answer to this question have on the use of mobile phones in police operations with regards to the principles of using images as evidence in criminal proceedings?
