Ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) photography are important tools in forensic analysis. Cameras that are capable of recording UV and IR light can be used for a variety of purposes such as the enhancement of bloodstain patterns, gunshot residue patterns, and fingerprint evidence on surfaces that normally do not provide much constrast using only visible light. At Knox & Associates, we use the latest in digital UV/IR photography to make sure that we can document the critical evidence you need for your case.
A photograph is a recording of light. At Knox & Associates, we can use advanced photographic techniques to record light in ways you never thought possible.

Many forensic reconstructionists use point-and-shoot cameras that do all the thinking. At Knox & Associates, we do the thinking. Our experts are skilled photographers who utilize the camera's manual controls to set exposures, control depth of field, and guarantee the quality of the photograph. While point-and-shoot settings work in many cases, the camera doesn't always know what the right settings are for a given situation. By controling the camera's settings manually, our experts will take photographs that are superior to what you will get from most forensic reconstructionists.
