    I just took a photography exam for Crime
    Scene Specialists and I'm kinda stumped on these
    two questions:

    * A mirror has writing on it. What is the best way to
    photograph this scene?

    a) camera perpendicular to mirror, and use the
    available lighting
    b) camera perpendicular to mirror, and use
    a standard flash
    c) camera perpendicular to mirror, and use
    a strobe

    Also, one question asked "What is the best way
    to photograph a footprint that is visible on dust?".
    This was a multiple choice question, but I can't
    remember the available answers. The answers involved
    placing the camera at specific angles, such as a 30 degree
    or 45 degree angle, or possibly placing the camera
    perpendicular to the footprint. What is the best angle?
    Also, do you recommed a special filter or flash to
    photograph the footprint??

    Thanks!

    --- Woody.

    To be honest, I think you would learn more from trying each of these
    techniques yourself.
