Never underestimate the power of your Crime Scene Photos

For those of you that have been photographing crime scenes and victims for some time now, they daily routine of crime scene photography may have slipped into the realm of well… routine.

It can be easy in this line of work to fall into a “get in, get your photos, and get out” kind of mentality. As a crime scene investigator you should never allow yourself to become too personally involved in your daily casework, but if you are not careful, real people can become just faceless victims.

Remember, the camera you hold in your hands can be a powerful tool. Our crime scene photographs can, and do, speak for the victims that cannot always speak for themselves. They are often used, as we are reminded here, as a key piece of evidence that determines if a suspect will go to jail for his crimes.
