Chapter Event: Orange County

Venue: Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport

Photography for the Forensic Expert


Join us for an Orange County Chapter Dinner Meeting on Thursday, March 15, 2018 to hear from speaker George Reis, who has providedd instruction to over 1,000 police agencies on digital image training.

Following a network reception at 5:30, George will be sharing his expertise in evidentiary and expert photography with us, with the primary goal of giving all experts hands-on knowledge of how to improve (or simply incorporate) photography into their forensic and litigation consulting practice.

Experts in almost every field potentially need to take photographs of locations, scenes, items of evidence, product defects and failures, etc. These photographs may then be used in litigation - but may not actually show the value of an object, the degree of failure, the details of the defects, etc. Taking the best quality photographs helps support your findings and prevents the need to hire a photographer. They make you a more valuable expert for your client. 

This presentation will provide the information needed to take more effective photographs through the five keys to making great forensic photographs - including lighting techniques that are easy to apply, choosing the right perspective, and having sharpness throughout your subject of interest. At the end of this presentation you will have several simple techniques that can greatly improve the quality of your photographs.
