  Workshop Photo Documentation
In this workshop of 45 minutes the principles of photo documentation will be explained.
After a short introduction of the method (technical settings and sequence of photography) you will get the opportunity to shoot your own set of photographs of a (fictitious or real) injury. Feedback will be given by experienced medical forensic photographers.

The focus is to improve your images for both medical and forensic purposes, by following strict procedures (also helpful when someone else actually takes the photographs, eg. a medical or police photographer).

Afterwards you will receive a mnemonic (in English): a ‘credit card’ with a short checklist.

Only place for 15 persons per 45 minutes.

Times:13.30 – 14.15 h or 14.15 – 15.00 h or 15.30 – 16.15 h.
