This is not a use case I have had to work with before but a little bit of digging seems to have found a solution.

This guide indicates how to have apache not log certain requests.

So, based on that, something like this should prevent logging of common image formats.

SetEnvIf Request_URI "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|bmp)$" dontlog

Note: I have not tested this configuration line and regex in Apache so it may require some adjustment if it does not work perfectly as is
