Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Photography

Paranormal Photography

Dating back to the 1800s, paranormal photography has been a point of controversy. It includes capturing paranormal phenomena in images.  We are in search of documenting and showing evidence of ghosts, orbs and apparitions, ectoplasms or vortexes and anything not of this world in our images. Many people dismiss paranormal photography and videos, but it can still be considered a legitimate field of study. Inexplicable images such as orbs, ectoplasms, or vortexes appear in many photographs during our hunts. Here are some terms and or some things to bring along.

  • Digital and analog audio recording: to capture any unexplained noises and electronic voice phenomena (EVPs), that may be interpreted as disembodied voices.
  • Orb: The term orb describes unexpected, typically circular artifacts that occur in photography—sometimes with trails indicating motion.
  • Ectoplasm: Ectoplasm (from the Greek ektos, meaning “outside,” and plasma, meaning “something formed or molded”) is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy “exteriorized” by physical mediums.  Ectoplasm is said to be associated with the formation of spirits.  Ectoplasm is said to be formed by physical mediums when in a trance state. This material is excreted as a gauze-like substance from orifices on the medium’s body, and spiritual entities are said to drape this substance over their nonphysical body, enabling them to interact in the physical and real universe. Some accounts claim that ectoplasm begins clear and almost invisible, but darkens and becomes visible, as the psychic energy becomes stronger. Still, other reports state that in extreme cases ectoplasm will develop a strong odor. According to some mediums, the ectoplasm cannot occur in light conditions as the ectoplasmic substance would disintegrate.
  • EMF Meters: Measure fluctuations in electromagnet fields (or EM fields). These fields are a direct result of electrical appliances in a home, cell phones, power lines outside and even fluctuations in solar activity and weather. Beyond that, a primary theory in the paranormal world is that entities can manipulate these fields in their attempt to manifest themselves or interact with our world.
  • Paranormal Vortex:. A vortex in everyday life is a whirling mass of either air or water such as a whirlpool. Some believe a paranormal vortex is a space where spirits can travel between our world and the afterlife.  They say it is used as a point to pass through to our side. Some say vortexes in hauntings can be redirected where others say they cannot be closed.
  • Spiritual Vortex: – Sedona in Arizona is an area known to have people come to experience its metaphysical dimensions. Spiritual vortexes are said to be a “hot spot” of energy which Sedona is known for. Effects reported to happen in these areas include psychic enhancement and spiritual healing among other things.

Photography & Basic Information

Lens: Ghost hunting is a wide angle lens activity, but you ideally do need a lens with an open aperture such as 2.8 or below. The higher end cameras will allow you to go to a very high ISO with less noise, so they are also ideal. If you don’t have a high-end camera, any camera will do. After all, we are not going for super high-quality images here. We are going for super high amounts of paranormal activity instead.

Gear:  Bring your tripod and your infrared filter along with your infrared illuminating light and your shutter release. Bring your driver’s license just in case you are questioned by the police. Be prepared for that. Be sure there aren’t any NO TRESPASSING signs where you are, and you should be okay. There is a list of equipment below that you should consider purchasing.
