What would you all recommend?
yeah, more details please
I'm taking pictures of scar tomorrow...I have a D50 w/kit lens. I do have a SB600 don't know if I should use it or not.
It will be in a Doctor's office so most likely fluorescent lighting.
Just to take a picture of it, or do you want it to be something special? Is this going to be a "photograph" or just a "picture of a scar"?
Well it's going to the insurance company for an injury...
then just take a picture. I'm sure they insurance company isn't looking for a piece of art.
Working for the plaintiff so the pictures need to look their best.
iso400 and bounce the flash.
Be careful about what you do to it in ps too.
You might not want to do anything.
Yeah that was my original thought...
maybe...if scar is in an oily area, wash skin first so grease isnt reflective
I never us PS, but isn't there a stretch tool?
OMG THAT SCAR IS 18" LONG!!
you're going to post is here, right?
Filters -> Lens Flare
Yeah I'll post it...
you will have to bounce the flash. also, make sure the area behind the person is a contrasting color.
Use a low angle and direct flash so the scar shows a big shadow. Makes it look taller.
Also, clone stamp tool FTW.
If its for legal reasons, your best bet would be a disposable film camera. I wouldnt mess with digital when it comes to legal issues unless you are using one of the specific items that Canon (and maybe Nikon) sell that stamp the original file to prove that it has never been altered by any means of image manipulation.
That shit is like $2,000
It might cost you a hell of a lot more than $2k though if they are not found to be reliable in court.
"Hahaha that guy shot a picture of his scar in TV mode with ISO 800, at f/2.8 outside in the afternoon... ZOmg!! lets add lens flare!! har har har"
