HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH A GHOST
Control the lighting.
Light cast from multiple sources will make it difficult to deter-mine which effects are optical and which are supernatural. If the haunted location is indoors, control the sources of lightingby closing doors, shutting curtains, and reducing the numberof interior lights that are on so that it is clear what light is,or isn’t, coming from the expected sources in the room. Foroutdoor locations, avoid taking photographs facing into or ata 90-degree angle from the sun or a bright moon, as this may cause lens flare. Attach a lens hood to your camera.
Bring an assistant/witness.
