If you want a laugh have a look here:
Infra red my butt ..... How long would it take a reasonable practioner of P/S to concoct an image a bit more convincing than the one in the telegraph?

A quick cut, paste to a layer adjust opacity maybe layer blend adjust or what would be your favourite method to convince the pundits that ghosts are on the increase? More spirits manifesting themselves mostly due to New Labour's relaxation of licensing hours.

It's OK Peter, Cornwall is not on the list.

The last two words of the article are quite interesting:

mmmm

I translate 'mmmm' to mean 'what a load of coblers'

Do you think the insurance company paid out ?

Fun article - would make a great forum challenge create such an image.

Ghost photographs have always been easy to fake - and therein lies the problem for the ghosthunter. No matter what you see and record, no-one will believe you.

You don't really need photoshop. Things like long exposures and slow people, double exposures, and so on. Computers increase the possibilities though.

If you can find a cooperative ghost you don't need a computer, photoshop or fancy photography techniques.

This is equally as convincing ......... lol

On a visit to a stately home I captured this - which looks like the ghost of Napoleon to me. Smile But it may be a trick of the light! Grin

lol - do ghosts only appear in black and white?

Surely Napoleon would have got some colour back in his cheeks back by now.

Bit of a grey area I suppose?

Forget "World Pinhole Day" - perhaps we should start, here on epz "World Poltergeist Day" and see what appears?

When shall we do it? Halloween? Smile
