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痴. 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,
