Forensic photography is a type of photography that showcases accidents and crime scenes. This type of photography creates a visual record of evidence usable by the police and in court.
Forensic photography serves as a key part of police records for accidents and crime scenes. Forensic photographers must have the skills to utilize their cameras to capture a permanent visual record of any crime scene or accident. Their photographs must be detailed, and they must photograph every piece of evidence available at a scene. The final photographs can be used for evidence analysis and in court to attempt to prove what happened throughout the crime or accident.
