How to Capture the Paranormal
The fact of it is you never know if you will actually capture a spirit or ghost on film. It is possible you might catch a dust particle, fog, mist, insects or smoke floating by your camera. The best practice however is to set your camera on a tripod or sturdy table - check the table’s legs for wobbling, and use a remote control to take the picture. Not all cameras are wireless capable, but if yours is, this is a good idea to prevent the camera from being moved and giving false images.
If you are holding the camera while you take pictures, keep your hand as steady as possible. If you can, lean on something stable while you shoot. People tend to shake slightly while adjusting their camera, so even if you have to hold your breath while taking it, the shot will come out smoother. Take casual shots; shoot the room at random, especially if you feel you aren’t alone.
Take several shots of the same area before turning to a different position. This determines that if the camera does capture an image, it can prove whether it was there in subsequent shots. Do not smoke while performing paranormal photography as this could easily be mistaken for a supernatural mist.
