While the number of assignments available in many photographic specialties is decreasing, there are still relatively untapped growth areas for still photographers and videographers. Legal Photography: A Complete Reference for Documenting Scenes, Situations, and Evidence for Civil Cases written by Stan Sholik and published by Amherst Media introduces one such area: legal photography.
Legal photography involves working closely with lawyers to provide photographic or video documentation relevant to civil cases. It can involve a range of photographic specialties from macro photography to architectural photography. Legal photography is far more technical than creative. However, it is in demand and financially rewarding.
Readers learn how ensure that the images captured and delivered for presentation are a "fair and accurate representation" of the observed scene. That responsibility begins with the choice and use of the correct camera, lens, and capture mode for the job. Sholik walks shooters through the techniques used during image capture and rendering such as exposure, lighting, camera angle, camera-to-subject distance, white balance, and post-processing.
Sholik demonstrates how to document each step of the photographic process to ensure all parties that the representation is fair and accurate. Similarly, information about how to proceed should you be asked to give testimony regarding the accuracy of your work and information about the requirements to be deemed an "expert witness" is provided. Finally, Sholik addresses how to market yourself as a legal photographer in order to book assignments.
