Agree with Rene,
UV lights are the obvious option and will possibly give the best results.
Another trick if you are a Capture One user, is to do an LCC with a single light source hitting the surface only from one direction. This will enhance the micro-texture of the finger prints as it does with text or texture on paper.
This article is quite old but the procedure hasn’t changed: http://www.mamiyaleaf.com/tipstricks_0212_newsletter.asp
Hope this helps

In my day, as a policeman, documents were soaked in a ninhydrin solution and then slowly dried out in a warm cupboard. Use to be 6 weeks before results come through. However, I suspect they have moved on since then.Best way could be to contact the local Police station, SOCO department you will find them knowledgeable and helpful.Kind regardsNick Matthews

Sent from my iPadHello,One of my BA Fine Art students would like to capture the fingerprints that appear all over an old photo she is trying to digitise from the 1950’s. Obviously this is something we normally try our best to remove, so if anyone has any tips/ ideas or experience of how we can highlight or show the fingerprints then I would be most grateful !Thanks in advance,Lisa.––––––––––––UCA Digital Services: digital access for allLisa ChadwickDigital Imaging ManagerCentre for Digital ScholarshipPlease note I work Tuesday to Friday, during Term Time only.–University for the Creative ArtsFalkner RoadFarnhamSurrey GU9 7DS–Telephone: 01252 892720Twitter: @LibraryUCA<12C07DEF-1E43-4975-BB7D-1956FE668D95.png>–<B5DF3AEE-011E-4576-BA89-25EA7F58D995.png>–UCA is the No.1 Specialist University for the Creative Industries in the Complete University Guide and Guardian University Guide league tables.
