Fire Photography is a genre of photography specifically targeted to the extremely difficult light conditions and environmental situations encountered when using photographic applications in the fire service. Fire Photography recognizes how important it is for the investigator to be able to see and understand what they are looking at and how that affects their ability to accurately render the subject. Having a proper orientation towards photography is foundational to understand how a camera can help document investigations. This webinar will be the introduction to a visual skills set that will help train the investigator's eye in understanding what they are looking at while also seeing and quantifying light in a scene for best exposure construct.
