Trick 1:

I usually get the best photographs by staying near people with positive attitudes. Spirits tend to interact more with positive personalities than persons with negative attitudes. People with negative attitudes can influence and hinder investigations severely and should be avoided. If disbelievers require proof they should at least enter each situation with an open mind.

Trick 2:

Let the group you are with slowly pass you by, then take a photo of the group. Spirits like to observe from above and behind groups. I usually capture something at about 20 feet away.

Trick 3:

When near the back of the group get your camera ready and shoot a quick picture from behind your head. Ghosts like to follow and will be expecting to move with you especially if they don't want to be photographed.
