>Photo Table


The photo table is developed by experts with long experience in forensic investigation and photography.

The basic idea behind the development was to create a photo table for most types of photographic methods within the forensic area with a limit of equipment, space and cost.

Here you will find some examples how use the photo table in use.

> Lighting Setups Examples

With the removable diffusion filters, you can get a softer light for photographing evidence such as a shiny surface like a knife.

A handle mounted lamp can be used to look for shoe prints.

An example of a shoe print on a piece of glass is photographed with light from underneath.

The black table board is now placed on the
lowest part of the table which gives suitable black background (so called dark field lightning).

Example of a Photographing shoe print in dust with low oblique light.

An example of a Photographing a casting of a shoe impression.

> Mirror System for Advanced Lighting Techniques

Shoe print on a glass plate. Standard the mirror is now mounted for under light for photographing.

The mirror reflects the light when you turns the mirror so that the footprint becomes visible on the glass plate

An Gelatin Lifter with a lifted shoe print is
photographed with light from two light sources,
reflected in the Standard Mirror.

Photographing a shoeprint in blood on a wrinkled paper, secured with Black MIKROSIL and silicone paper using coaxial lighting. 

The acrylic plastic board and the two light sources with diffusion filters give an extreme soft light. That light is reflected from the Transparent mirror, which is turned at about a 45 degree angle between the camera and the print.

The Black backdrops textile on the left side of the table is blocking unwanted reflections and gives a black background in the photo.

This is the result of an untreated fingerprint on a bath room scale photographed with the coaxial light tech nique, the image on the left shows normal light exposure and the image to the right shows the same area with the coaxial lighting setup as shown above.

Designed for recovering invisible extrusion lines in plastic bags Polarizing method.

Matching extrusion lines in two plastic bags, photographed with two Polarizing filters and white under light
(the bags are placed between the filters).

These pictures show extra accessories you need for the so-called projection method for comparison of
extrusions lines in clear plastic bags. The bags are placed between two glass boards. 

The projection screen is placed on the top glass. Projected light from one of the lamps.  

Light is now mounted on the floor
stand approx. 3 meters from the table – will be reflected in the mirror. 

Near parallel light rays will pass
the clear plastic film and show a picture of extrusion lines on the screen. The distance between the two
glass boards is adjustable for getting the best sharpness of extrusion lines.
