Forensic Photography - Forensic Photography

A forensic investigation always includes photography as it is an indispensable part of the process. Since digital, the possibilities of taking photos are constantly evolving, and it offers a quick and easy method of recording images with a variety of cameras.
The courses are provided in three different languages: English, Spanish, and French. These workshops are intended for people involved in photographic documentation and my objective is to improve both your theoretical knowledge and your technical proficiency, regardless of your current level of expertise.
This workshop can be adapted to fit any circumstance, as well as the capabilities of any digital camera. Each student will use their own digital camera throughout the course, which will help them develop a deeper understanding of both their gear and the opportunities it affords them.

My training has already been completed in several countries, such as Chile, Colombia, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Iraq, Mexico, and Peru, amongst others, in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, Departments of Forensic Medicine, Department of Justice, and other organizations.

I always travel with the materials that are required to ensure the success of a workshop, and I always make it a point to organize things so that each participant has the opportunity to use the appropriate materials during the workshop.

During the workshop, we will discuss the following topics, among others:
·        Acquiring Knowledge of Exposure, Aperture, Speed, ISO, Depth of Field, and White Balance in Photography.
·        Having a solid comprehension of the composition, the viewpoint, the framing, and the empty space in the image.
·        Acquiring comprehension of the various formats, objectives, coefficients, and filters.
·        Camera settings, lighting, ultraviolet, and infrared.
·        Different types of range used in photography: overall, mid-range, and close-up.
·        How to have an image with an excellent visual explanation
·        When and how to make use of the appropriate materials such as a ruler, arrow, number, or forensic rods.
·        Reconstruction of the skeleton and interpretation of the findings.
·        Taking photographs of various aspects, including wounds, bruises, bullet trajectories, clothing, and so on.
·        A comprehension of the many different ways in which our eyes can see.
·        How to give the subject of an image greater importance by directing the viewer's attention directly to it.
·        The fundamentals of using a digital camera – DSLR
·        How to take photographs during an autopsy or bone analysis
·        How to avoid misunderstandings or confusion when looking at a picture.
·        Acquiring Knowledge of Metadata, Storage, and Security.  
·        A comprehension of the graphic chain, from the photograph to the print.                    
You will also learn how to get great images without having to use software such as Photoshop or Lightroom, which are the most commonly used programs for retouching light, sharpening, cropping, etc.
You will acquire this knowledge through the training you will receive.
You will learn how to achieve these results by just following a few simple steps.
I am still willing to consider any proposition, and I am able to provide a workshop program
that is more narrowly focused on a single subject.
In the event that you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
