Most excellent!! Icontexto-emoticons-04-032x032 My dad was also a camera buff, i have all of his old cameras, even an old video camera.

Pride and Fear always distort the truth into either a false sense of security or a lack of confidence and diminished self-worth.

RE: Paranormal photography and understanding exif
I take pictures with my cell phone. lol That's a lot of good info though. I like the part about the exif a lot. I had found it once before ( on accident ) while looking through properties on a picture for some reason or another but now I have a better understanding of it.

RE: Paranormal photography and understanding exif
UNR, thats alot to take in in one reading, i will try to put it to good use and how to understand the world of photography, many thanks for this post, i usually have a quick glance at these and not much more, but i enjoyed reading this, many many thanks, and thank you for telling me about it in another post. Im sure i will be in and out of this post a few times reading how to do this and how to do that when taking photos.

I usually point the camera and hope for the best, i will certainly try and use some of these UNR, again thank you.

Heaven doesn't want me, and Hell's afraid i'll take over

Wow!, This is excellent information! Thank you so much for posting it! I for sure, will be referring back to this post. I've been trying for a long time to adjust the manual settings on my Kodak Digital Easy Share camera to get good pictures, and recently joined my brothers Paranormal Research Group, (where I will need this type of help) [/font]so this is just awesome! Thanks again!

BlueudI honestly think this is the best post by far that I have read on any forum! You have explained it so well in detail that I learned things that I thought I already knew. That was amazing and I can tell just by what you wrote that you must be an amazing paranormal photographer and if you have any of your own photos with evidence I would LOVE to see them!

RE: Paranormal photography and understanding exif
I work as a medical photographer and you've even pointed things out some things that I should know, but didn't!

Combining this information with any paranormal investigation I undertake, I should be able to decide whether or not any pics are probably genuine or not on the spot.

Yeah, he's cool like that, Ghostsandmore! I've learned so much about paranormal investigation from UNR's posts. The most important thing I've learned is when looking at picture evidence...really educate myself on what I'm looking at.

Thanks Smile It's true what you say. You do really need to educate yourself when looking at pictures. Along with this, I believe the best way is to produce pictures after thinking of all options and getting a select sample of skeptics and believers to give you what they think, without revealing your opinion. Then compare the facts.

All of this exif data has come in handy and I have already de-bunked some of my collection deemed "uncertain"!

RE: Paranormal photography and understanding exif
I thought I would add a little more to this as many of the claimed paranormal pictures we see are explainable.

Every flash picture taken is actually twp pictures, the initial picture is the basic picture burned in by the flash. Its after this where we see many mistakes as cameras with wrong settings and even auto settings create misperceptions. The second picture or second part is ambient light, thats the brighter objects, its how people do light painting, its why we see squigglys, or light tracers in pictures. The aperture remains open after the flash and people will move the camera. This shows up as streaks of light. I suggest all paranormal photographers to study light painting.

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

The light streaks are in more abundance than the orbs are...good one to add!
