Introduction to crime scene photography.

Robinson, Edward M.

Academic Press


415 pages




Especially designed for use in community college and high school courses, this color-illustrated text is a scaled-down, concise version of the author's 2007 text, Crime Scene Photography. Author Robinson (forensic science, the George Washington University) has based the text on the guidelines set out by the three Scientific Working Groups on best photographic practices for imaging technology, shoe prints, tire tracks, and fingerprints. After a detailed overview of crime scene photography and photo documentation, chapters cover exposure, focus and depth of field, lenses, electronic flash, energy filters and sensors, and digital processing of evidentiary photography. The final chapter explores legal issues related to photographs and digital images. The book includes color photos on every page, along with detailed chapter summaries, discussion questions, and a glossary. Academic Press is an imprint of Elsevier.
