Here are 4 easy steps that could help you capture some type of spirit image on any camera. Photographs
of anomalies can greatly help ghosthunters identify certain problems along with the right documentation of the events.
Photographs are also a great asset for investigators and handy to have if the events in your home
become more than you can handle and you need the assistance of a ghosthunting group.
How to Take a Ghosts Photograph.
Step 1: Visit the space weather website and check on the solar magnetic field activities and
write them down. They range from no activity, to moderate activity to high activity. At this time you can also visit the moon
calender site and find out when the closest full moon cycle will occur (ghosts need energy to form. High solar fields and
a full moon create higher than normal electromagnetic fields that tend to make spirits more active). Photographing during
these events will give you a better chance at capturing ghostly phenomena. Please visit my links page for space weather and
moon calender websites.
Step 2: On a sheet of paper write down the time, date, local weather conditions, barometric
pressure, humidity and wind speed.
Step 3: Walk through your house and talk to your ghost.
Explain to him/her that you know he/she is there and that you would like to take his/her picture. Yes...being polite also
works on spirits. Remember that they were once mortal too.
Step 4: After each picture is taken write down some information such as which room the picture
was taken, time of the photograph, temperature of the room at time of photo and any unusual feelings or noises.
Take film to a trusted photo-lab in your area and wait for the results. Note that sometimes pictures that don't
seem to have anything on them can be the cause of paranormal phenomena. Eg. photos on two negatives, not on one of them, then
photo on the next negative etc. Check your photos carefully as ghosts like to reflect off of windows and mirrors or travel
high or low to the ground (they don't always show up in the centre of your photograph).
In this area I'll define three of the most common pieces of equipment other than
the camera in an investigation as well as vocabulary used by ghosthunters but not necessarily needed to perform the tasks
described on this page.
Digital Thermometer - Uses a laser light to acquire
an accurate temperature reading from distances of up to 20 ft. Used in hard to get at areas (drops in temperature 10-40 degrees
can be caused by paranormal activity).
Electromagnetic Field Detectors - are used to get
readings of the electromagnetic field in an area being investigated. Unusually high spikes in the detector can (sometimes)
verify the magnetic signatures of ghosts. This equipment is quite tricky and can give false readings. You will need some experience
for it be used correctly to validate your haunting.
Voice Phenomena or the use of any digital or electronic means to record the voices of spirits. Any type of recording device
will work but digital creates less background noise (from the machine itself) than the standard cassette recorder. When trying
to get e.v.p.'s leave gaps between your questions, this allows the entity appropriate time to respond.
