Abstract

Photography is a critical factor in solving out the mysteries behind the crimes by giving out critical information applicable to criminal, legal investigation. It was initially based on manually operated camera and film strips and later adopted digital technology for recording and storing the visuals. Digital evidence can show the relative position of evidence at the scene, establish the relative dimension of the evidence and also cross compliment other evidence collection techniques. The inadequate and improper collection, preservation and presentation of evidence can lead to crime scene errors and fewer conviction rates. Training in forensic photography is vital, and a game changer in the medico-legal investigations.
