Digital Camera - DSLR - Wound

Depending on the size of the wound, a wound shot is most likely best captured in the macro shot distance range. The wound should be framed to show the entire wound including an element for scale. The image will most likely require additional accompanying images to show the location of the wound in relation to the rest of the body. The wound image should display the true color of the wound and any possible additional color variations found at the site. Acceptable depth of field in this image should allow for detail to be appreciated in the wound structures as well as some additional surrounding skin and/or hair structure. Relief between the wound, layers of the wound, and the surrounding tissue should be able to be appreciated. The image should be free of specular highlighting, especially on the wet surfaces. This image should allow for a superb overall level of detail. This shot is best obtained with the camera parallel to the wound, and with the camera height at the same level as the focal point. This shot is best obtained with the wound draped, and braced to decrease movement and potential blurring effects.
