    Great post and tips! I often find myself answering similar questions. However, I have to agree with your first statement – just hire a medical photographer to do it!

    How goes the new job?

      There’s one thing I didn’t adress in this post, and that is the tendency of hospital boards getting the idea that who presses the shutter release doesn’t matter now that we’ve gone digital, and consequently “rationalizes” photo departments away…

      As someone said, the equipment is not half of the job – knowledge is.

      I’m not starting in my new job until November, but thanks for asking :)

        I know what you mean. As both a freelance photographer and medical photographer – digital has killed the “art” of photography and the photographer. I love hearing people think they can take a great picture with now knowledge of light or focus or composure.
