For as long as there have been cameras, pictures of ghosts have swamped our newspapers, television programs, and over the internet. Some of these pictures have been taken surprising the photographer, while others were maliciously made to trick you. So how do you believe what’s real and what’s not?
In the early days of photography there have been popular pictures of apparitions such as “The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall”. This particular photograph can be duplicated after a few tries by a mere smudge of Vaseline on the lens or perhaps double exposure. We may never know the true story behind the picture.
Other pictures thru the years were taken unexpectedly and found apparitions, orbs, streaks of light, and the list goes on. Usually it’s caused by inexperience of the photographer on proper use of cameras. Allowing too much light or not enough in the camera, slow shutter speeds, and as simple as not using a tripod. I urge you all to search our website for more information on this. It’s quite fascinating!
Today’s technology offers so much more to our photographs than we could ever thought was possible ten years ago. There are so many apps and digital options on our iPhones and cameras that purposely allow you to fake pictures taken to look like ghost.
Fake ghosts are a lot more agreeable than real ones. You don’t have to worry that your fake ghost is going to go floating off through a wall, leaving nothing but a puddle of ecto-plasmic goo behind for you to slip in. Fake ghosts do what you tell them to do, because they’re fake. That makes photographing them infinitely more enjoyable, and a lot less scary. If ghosts actually exist, do you think they are only found in cemeteries, basements and other spooky areas these pictures portray? Why haven’t we not gotten more pictures in amusement parks or other areas that are more of a happy setting?
Before you ooh and aah the pictures posted online getting thousands of hits, ask yourself if this picture has the settings to make you believe it could be faked and how could it have been done. Ask someone more knowledgeable and credible to give you the right answer.
