Light Art Performance Photography (LAPP) is a unique form of art that was invented and developed by the authors of this book. It is one of the first forms of art using light as the medium to gain widespread attention. Unlike other types of light painting, LAPP does not just involve illuminating existing objects; it also requires the photographer to create and capture new subjects constructed entirely of light. LAPP pieces are usually shot at night using long exposure times to capture complex sequences of precisely choreographed movements. Real-world surroundings are combined with transient, light-based elements to produce spectacular effects. The defining characteristic of LAPP is the harmony between the background and the harsh light often used to produce the individual image elements. The symbiosis between photographer and performer gives each work a degree of reproducibility that is essential if it is to be accurately restaged at a later time. The first part of this book describes the evolution of LAPP as told by its originators, while the middle section goes on to present a gallery of spectacular, large format LAPP images. The final section offers some basic steps and tips to give you a starting point for creating your own LAPP artworks.

Throw your preconceptions about light-painting out the window and prepare for a creative journey that will revolutionize your photography. Light painting is a classic photography technique that involves selectively illuminating sections of a dark subject by moving a light source (like a flashlight) over the subject during the course of a seconds- or minutes-long exposure. This results in uniquely nuanced depictions with a high level of technical artistry. As Eric Curry shows, however, today’s hardware and software allow you to produce light-painting images that are anything but traditional! In this book, you’ll learn, step by step, how to plan and execute incredible, nuanced images using simple gear, a whole lot of imagination, and today’s powerful postproduction software. With these techniques, your imagination is the only limit to what you can create!

The ability to thoroughly and properly document a crime scene through photography is a must for crime scene investigators. Regardless of the time of day, weather conditions, or confines in which a piece of evidence is concealed, photographs must be true and accurate. Capturing all the pertinent information and evidence for use during an investigation and testimony is critically important. Evidence is commonly found in less-than-photographically-friendly environments. Possessing the knowledge and skills necessary to properly photograph those difficult-to-image subjects is vitally important. Advanced Crime Scene Photography explains how to identify crime scene challenges, design plans to capture images correctly, and execute those plans successfully. Seamlessly integrating photography principles with corresponding applications in crime scene photography—moving progressively from basic to more advanced concepts—this book demonstrates how to record photographs in low-light conditions, including the use of flash and painting with light techniques. The book also addresses a variety of topics including impression evidence, fire scenes, laser trajectories, macro-photography, and ultraviolet and infrared photography. Offering tips on everything from creating compelling photos on a limited budget to the photography of Luminol reactions, this Second Edition: Features a new chapter on photographing fire scenes, presenting solutions to problems commonly faced by fire investigators Includes the addition of review questions and photography assignments at the end of each chapter Contains more than 250 full-color images and photographs Anyone can take a photograph in perfect lighting, with the subject sitting out in the open and already positioned for the best composition. Advanced Crime Scene Photography, Second Edition provides crime scene investigators with a comprehensive, step-by-step resource on crime scene photography under the most difficult and adverse conditions.
