Photograph #1: You are to set up some type of item that could be used as a weapon in a crime, i.e., gun, knife, screwdriver, etc. Position the weapon in such a way that it is in the shadow caused by sunlight similar to the examples on pages 252, 253, and 255 of your text. Attempt to use a flash-fill technique to illuminate the weapon. Depending on the type of camera and accessories you have to use will affect the results of your photograph. Do not worry about trying to make the photograph turn out perfect. The idea is to learn from the technique.
Photograph #2: Set up another similar piece of evidence, but place it in an area of total or almost total darkness. This photograph can be taken indoors or outdoors. It can be any type of object, but you can use the same from the first photograph if you wish. Take a photograph using direct flash technique, not bounced or diffused. You should be close enough to the object to be able to identify what it is in the photograph.
Note: It does not matter what type of camera you use for this assignment. If you have the most expensive digital camera on the market with all the accessories or if you buy a disposable film camera with built in flash. The goal is not for you take the perfect photograph, but to take the photographs and learn to identify the problems if any and to give you a small sample of taking crime scene photographs of evidence using the flash.
If you are using a phone camera with no flash, try to fill in with another light source such as a bright flash light or spotlight.
Write an essay describing the results of your photographs. Include exactly what type of camera you used (brand name and model, digital or film), your ISO settings, type of lens (either the exact focal length such as 50mm or fixed pre-focused). Everything about the camera should be described in the essay. Did your photographs turn out the way you expected? Why, or why not? Describe in detail why your photographs turned out the way they did, and what could be done to improve the photographs if anything. What other equipment would you have used if you had access to it?
If you took digital pictures or had film converted to digital, submit them with your essay. Be sure to name your photograph files with your last name and photo 1 or 2. Example: smithphoto1.jpg and smithphoto2.jpg.
All digital photographs submitted should be in jpeg format. If you used film and are unable to scan them or have them processed as digital you do not have to submit them.
