After reviewing hundreds of pictures I am finding many teams do not know what caused the  anomalies  in their pictures. They post their pictures on their sites, and claim they are paranormal in nature, when in fact most of the anomalies are nothing but slow shutter speed, or other things that can be explained. Here are a few articles that I hope will help when deciding what you have in your picture.


I have a problem with people not understanding what strong light can do to an object. There are many teams that do not understand that when something is close to the flash it will have a paranormal quality about it, but it is NOT! The examples I have here is a flower, and my hand. The flower was moved slightly so it is giving off a different effect.

The strong light even has makes Angus of AC/DC look like he is some sort of a inhuman. It is really the same thing as a bug or dust that is lit up in your picture, it is NOTHING paranormal. If someone stands next to you while taking a picture, and if they get a large amount of the flash hitting them, there will be a glow in your picture, it is as easy as that. Stop calling these types of pictures paranormal.

  What is in this picture, well it is nothing more then a smudge on the window. Similar results can happen when your lens is dirty, so make sure your lens is clean.    

Water Fight!!! Orbs....eeek!!

Yep the famous water orbs. Look how bright they are, they seem to be lit up with energy. All the energy my flash put out  that is.

Pretty rainbow orbs??

This picture was taken through a screen, reflection causing lens flare or is it just the reflection from the screen. To be honest I am not to sure how to exactly call this one, but it is not paranormal.

This is a large string from a rag. This is a piece of the rag as it was pulled away.

The claim, there was a shadow in the corner of my picture, happens all the time, and it can be explained.  The size of most digital cameras are very small, so  it is very easy for a finger to get in the way of the flash. Here are some examples that can occur.

  No flash, slow shutter speed, light from monitor, and smoke makes a spooky picture. Nothing paranormal.

Talking about "Orbs" again!

   Yep, I am going to talk about "orbs" again!! It still amazes me that people pass off 'orbs" as evidence. I look at websites all the time to check their claims on what they call evidence, and guess what, yep, theres "orbs"!  Orbs in night shots, orbs it the day shots,...

Why did this happen?

  This is Ruby laying under a Jasmine bush. When I took this picture I zoomed in on her, and moved the camera while taking the picture.  If I would have used a tripod it would not have looked this way.

  Strange anomalies?? No just hair, just like the example of the camera strap, hair will look like a strange anomaly when the flash fires.

If someone does not understand why these videos are on this site, then truly they have no business in the paranormal field which takes a lot of common sense.
