    Default Did someone say Crime Scene Photos - EPIC come see me please!

    After we (TriCoast) speak Sunday morning on Wireless eTTL / iTTL flash at Imaging we are moving over to EPIC for a three part class on Crime Scene Lighting.

    Going over some of the basics for Law Enforcement:

    • low light shooting
    • off camera flash cords
    • IR system of Canon and Nikon
    • Radio Popper Units
    • Pocket Wizards
    • and a lot more


    During the first two hours of the presentation (broken up so we can all go to the tradeshow in the middle of the day).

    The last hour, sponsored by Canon, will allow you, the student to come down and shoot Canon's latest gear on a "Crime Scene" with model(s) dressed up as victims of a crime. Using the techniques we talked about during the previous two hours you can get as close to shooting a real crime scene without all the smells and true blood and guts.

    AND

    you rumor has it you get to keep the Memory Card after wards.


    So for those who can not get up and see us speak at 7am on Sunday morning, I truly hope to see some of you at the EPIC class we are teaching.

    It should be a whole lot of fun and a little weirdness mixed in

    Default Don't forget to bring ...

    For anyone taking Mike's class, don't forget to bring a ruler. In forensic images it is used to size and perspective. I've used one on accident skid mark photos as well as in the studio held next to scars.

    Good question I have actually tried to find out this answer.

    On the EPIC page it says:
    Your registration for EPIC School also gives you full access to everything that Imaging USA has to offer. For a complete listing of all classes, events, and the latest Imaging USA news, visit www.ImagingUSA.org/epic/


    So I would think logically it would go both ways. If not just register for EPIC and get both for the price of one.

    What about if I'm registered for Imaging and I just brought along and attached to my badge my old PPA "Forensics Group" badge ribbon (from many, many - about 29 - years ago). Do you think they would let me in (maybe just for old times sake)??? (The PPA Forensics group was the precursor of EPIC).

    After having Mike down here in Louisiana for our State Convention in August (and seeing part of his program) I want to sit in on this crime scene gig to see just how weird Mike can get...

    Say, maybe I could bring in some of my old autopsy photos from the 1970's to help in case he needs a little more weirdness - Oh, I forgot - they're all on 4x5 Ektachrome... anybody got a really big projector???

    Mike - All joking aside, I'm forwarding all the info on EPIC to our Police Chief - he may be interested in sending one of his officers to catch your program... I'll keep you posted...
