The importance of the legal photograph in forensic fire scene investigation

Gheorghe Popa

This paper tries to draw the attention of the judicial authorities to the importance of the legal photograph in the fire investigation, and especially to the methodology and tactical rules applied when performing it. At the same time, it offers practical solutions to fixate the fire outbreak and
fire marks that have a fundamental role in establishing the cause and circumstances of the fire occurrence. It also shows in a descriptive manner the main technical means that can be used in taking photographs when performing forensic fire scene investigation, with particular emphasis on
the electronic and optical systems that facilitate operating and obtaining three-dimensional spherical images, as well as making measurements where these are impossible to obtain through metric methods at the fire scene
