Hey SOF, my advice to u.  Quit pissin people off, because as soon as u piss Juan and Pan off, u've lost, trust me, i've been down that road before.  But, seeing how u already have, have fun losing every argument u put up, valid or not.  They are a great team together, and dont mess with either of them, for it will be your loss.
I've got the urge....to ghost hunt...

I have heard a lot of very good comments through the screaming and yelling. I can understand ship's skepticism, and while it is warranted to SOME degree, there has to be a line between believing and disbelieving. Without an open mind, nothing will ever be learned. It's all trial and error. We're all learning  daily and need to help eachother, not be combative and stubborn.
 But just out of curiosity, ship, what do you make of EVP's?? Are they just as "phony" as orbs, mists, and streaks of light?
 Also, I have been investigating for years, and yes, I do review my photos and don't believe everything
i see, but some thing are a mystery after every bit of logic is ruled out.. so, what do you make of this photo? There are no light sources (yes, I'm afraid you have to trust me on that unless you hapopen to be in Ohio and wish to see for yourself) and there isn't any explanation we could come up with at any of the organizations I belong to. Anyone can feel free to comment on it as well.

I wonder if this kid is even going to come back? If he does...he will find someway to discredit everything we say regardless of the proof we provide.  It used to be that pictures spoke a thousand words, and could be presented as evidence.  It used to be that if it was writing it was true.  But now...to pigheaded people...every picture we take...and everything we testify to is somehow purgery.  To me it seems obvious that if there is a site full of believers that it would speak to those people...and maybe they would say "Hey look at these people...look how many are in this site alone...if there are this many believers maybe it would be worth checking into..." but instead we are labeled nuts, fools and liars.  I am fed up with that...people like that are the reason I didn't come out and start talking about my abilities until two years ago.  My mother is one of those a$$holes...and she still doesn't know.  I guess that means she, and everyone else misses out on something unique, mystifying and fulfilling as what we do/see/photograph and investigate.  If they are that stubborn and scared...that they need to shroud themselves in nothing but routine...they can have their boring lives.  And if you do come back, S.O.F...I'm though arguing with you.  I happen to like and believe my ability...and if I feel I want to be duped by something so simple...I will...regardless of your comments.  It's your loss.

Even'n all just felt like I'd add to this post a bit, I can partially understand where shipoffools was coming from though he definetly went about it the wrong way, because when I look at this photos the first thing I see <in my mind> is the many different explanations for each of those pictures that would explain the abnormalities without being paranormal. Now I am truely a believer in the paranormal because I've seen felt and heard many things first hand, and I've actually learned to believe most of the pictures here, because I've been here talking or at least lurking ;) for over a year now, though still a newbie from to much lurk'n and not enough talk'n, and I've found that most everyone that I've met here seems to be trustworthy and full of friendship to those who come with an open mind and when reading the posts with these pictures they tell you why it can't be a flash reflection or any of the other non paranormal possibilities.  Inorder to trust the pictures you need to take the time to trust the people turning them in instead of attacking them from the get go. Once you trust the people the pictures become much easier to believe, because why would someone you've discovered as trustworthy lie?

Sorry if thats a bit out of place been lurk'n way past my bedtime today :) Good to write to you all again Cindy, Pan, Juan, and all.

I am new to this board but am going to jump in on this one.  From what I understand all views "ARE" welcome here but to come on and state  that certain people who believe in certain pictures are "foolish"???? I mean you insulted a great many people, and I just believe that you could have stated your opinion a little nicer and had it accepted a little easier had you not insulted so many people. Maybe your beginning sentence was a little harsh! I live with a non-believer so I deal with it everyday but dont insult me because if what I believe in! I hope you stay and find something that makes you a believer! I was a non-believer until I got my pic!!!!!

honestly i find it quite difficult to get a picture of a ghost in less you have a video camera running at all times.  Most of the time all I ever see of a ghost is just a glance.  I've only had one time where if I had a camera I could have got a awsome picture.

Recently, someone posed this question on a newsgroup:

"What is the best camera for picking up anomalies?"

:;)

Unable to resist this piece of tasty bait, I submitted the following suggestions to heighten the chances of capturing an "anomaly":

1. Digital, digital, digital.  Pixels of 1 or less are recommended
2. do not remove the long, swinging strap--the manufacturer installs
it for a reason
3. do not hold your breath when shooting--breathe freely, especially
on cold days.  You'll be more relaxed and thus better able to
concentrate on the shot.
4. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.  Ghosts are attracted to the smell of
smoke.  The sweeter the smell, the better, if you get my drift, and I
think that you do.
5. Always shoot with a large group.  Make sure at least two are
sensitives and trust the people not to interfere with the shot--they
have a serious job to do after all and are very careful.  They
wouldn't dare risk their credibility in this field.  Plus, you'll have
more witnesses who'll say you didn't smoke when you took that awesome
ectoplasm shot.  And you know what they say, the group mentality is
always superior to the judgment of one.
6. Follow the golden rule:  Always shoot in low-light conditions.
It's common knowledge that ghosts only come out at night.  Or in the
rain.  Or in the winter. Or in the late summer when there are alot of bugs flying around.  Or in dusty rooms and corridors.
7. Orbs have a tendency to show up when you kick around the ground
before taking the shot.
8. When shooting, leave a finger over the lens.  It provides perspective.
9. If all else fails, two words:  ADOBE PHOTOSHOP.  One of the most
underrated ghosthunting tools, photoshop has many features that will
bring out otherwise invisible anomalies.  A definite must for any
serious paranormal investigator.

TYVM.  

Unfortunately, as an experienced "ghosthuntress",  I regret to say that this will go right over the heads of some <dogmatic? naive?> others in the field, who will not get it.  And will not be amused.

You hit the nail on the head with this one Camille.
You definitly got it right.  ;)

What you posted is the simple difference between ghost hunters and researchers of the paranormal.

Eliminate all possiable explaniations and what remains is the truth.

Of literally thousands of photos , only 5% are hard to explain and of those 2% are explainable with further research.

Problem is , that too often than not , folks too easily accept what they see as the truth with no question.

Check out : www.paranormalresearchersofmaryland.com

You may enjoy it. The site is currently under construction but there is some content.

There are a few articles on the site that you may find interesting as well .

Thanks for the laugh,
