About this Unit
This unit is replaced by 300864 - Imaging in Science & Photographic Evidence from Spring 2013. Digital Forensic Photography 2 explores the application of digital forensic photography to preserve and enhance forensic evidence. The unit’s focus is mostly on optical and digital enhancement techniques that provide essential and non-destructive methods of enhancing physical evidence. Forensic photography is a critical area within the forensic sciences and an important skill for forensic practitioners. It further provides the learner with the necessary theoretical concepts of photographic science that underpins the conceptual aspects of evidence enhancement. Topics include; optical enhancement of evidence, digital enhancement of evidence, the detection of photographic forgeries, invisible radiation photography, polarising photomicroscopy, photomacrography, photomicroscopy, polarisation photography, photographic science and others.
