Send me your Ghost Photos and I’ll tell you why you’re wrong!

Posted by Harbinger451 on December 28, 2011

Babble CategoryI know – I could just say Ghost Photos are WRONG because ghosts Don’t EXIST!

But that would be CRASS and, I’m sure, would brand me as being as “narrow-minded” as the people who BELIEVE in ghosts…

Let alone as “narrow-minded” as the people who BELIEVE you can actually capture the image of a departed soul (spirit, phantom, shade or astral-projection) in a photo (or on film, video… or in a sound recording for that matter).

Enough of that though – let me get to my point.

I love the idea of ghost photos – I would LOVE to see the supposed photographic proof of mind-blowing concepts like there IS life after death and that the continuance of consciousness DOES go beyond the grave – but they are always SO DISAPPOINTING!

All you get is a continuous parade of obvious fakes and miss-identified out of focus dust particles, insects, camera straps, wisps of hair, breath vapor, smoke and light pollution – not forgetting the numerous accidental, intentional or coincidental reflections, projections, double exposures and bodily intrusions… I could go on but what’s the point

Is there not ONE photo out there that at least looks like it might be the apparition of a terrifying phantasmal disembodied presence grimly haunting the site of its untimely death… NO?

There are countless examples of pathetic “orbs” of light – for which there are many more likely explanations – but not one photo that actually looks like what I would consider to be a “real” ghost.

So – come on people – send me some photos or footage… and please, if you can – make them as SCARY or Spooky as you can… other wise it doesn’t deserve the title Ghost Photo!

Send images or video to inquiries@harbinger451.com with Ghost Photo in the subject line. If I get a good response I’ll show them in this blog to begin with but I ultimately intend to start a webpage dedicated to the Art of taking a good Ghost Photo… for that is what it is, an Art.

Ghosts are a figment of the human imagination so can not be photographed… but that’s just MY opinion. Prove me wrong and send me some convincing evidence.

  1. I am sorry to make spelling mistakes but I am not English-speaking and I use a site of on-line translation. I just wanted to say to you that I appreciate your article and your work on this blog a lot. For always in my bookmarks, thanks a lot.


  2. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few p.c. to force the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.


  3. Yeah bookmaking this wasn’t a risky determination great post!

    • The only ghost that this is a photo of is the ghost of some spaghetti… or maybe even some cheese strings!
      Seriously though – its more likely to be a few strands of hair or fiber very close to the lens – so totally out of focus – and then lit by the camera’s flash. It could possibly be breath (if it was very cold at the time) or smoke – but I think it has too much substance for that.
      The one thing I think it definitely isn’t – is a photo of the disembodied spirit of a dead person – but that’s just my opinion.


  5. Just added this blog to my favorites. I enjoy reading your blogs and hope you keep them coming!
