Investigation tip: initial photos

15 April 2008

Take distant “birds-eye” type photos showing as much of the project as possible.

Take duplicate sets using a wide-angle lens.

General photos can be used later to put critical job sequence photos into context. Diagrams or drawings can greatly assist the investigators or witnesses. If you can't copy them, photograph them.

Use a photo scale device especially involving structures that will soon become inaccessible due to the progress of the job.
