Facial Photography Fri, Sep 20 10:00-11:00 a.m.

Plastic surgery produces visible results which are often best documented by photography. Photographs provide a record of a patient’s progress and are a legal document as well. The quality of photographs seen in meetings and publications are highly variable and often do not conform to published standards.

Presentations will address basics of photography; specifically, as technical aspects apply to facial photography for plastic surgery patients. Photographic standards will also be addressed as well as legal aspects of photographs.

At the end of this activity participants will be able to:

  1. Make an appropriate choice of camera and lens for optimal facial photographs;
  2. Choose settings on the camera to improve depth of field and detail; 3.Discuss use and position of flash in facial photography;
  3. Use standardized views of the face for clinical photography;
  4. Discuss legal aspects of photography.
