False Apparition Ghost Pictures                             Back to Ghost Pictures

Kathy Owen from Bodfish, California and founder of Lake Isabella Paranormal Society sent us her and her
group's following experiments in creating false apparition ghost pictures, by lengthening the exposure time
(keeping the shutter open for a longer period of time).  On some cameras, it is quite easily to adjust the time
the shutter is open while taking a picture, to the second.  This could account for some pictures which have a
transparent person in them.  Did the shutter stay open longer than normal?  Here is Kathy's report:

"My son Daniel and members of L.I.P.S. conducted an experiment on the effects of double exposure, and the
use of open-shutter. The camera was set up on a tripod, and the shutter was set on a 10 second time frame. In
the pictures you can see how the test subjects appear to be transparent, and to the point you can barely see
them. Even with open-shutter, everything in the picture looks much brighter, meaning the shutter is left open
longer and picking up more light.  It appears to take on the effect of double-exposure and can easily be
mistaken for an apparition. This experiment was conducted with the use of a Kodak digital camera of 5.0
