Ghost Photography 101

GhPh101IP-350Ghost Photography 101 was first published in 2011. The first edition is now out-of-print.

A new edition — with updated tips and fresh insights — is planned for 2016.

Fiona flippantly describes this book as “something to offend almost every paranormal investigator, from believers to skeptics.”

Publisher’s book description

Ghost photos… are they real?

* Is that orb just dust or pollen or fog?
* Is that vortex actually a piece of hair?
* Is that apparition really smoke?

Chances are, the answer is no.

Professional photographer (and paranormal researcher) Fiona Broome shows the results of over six years of experiments with a variety of cameras, testing the normal explanations for orbs, vortices, and eerie figures.

Her conclusions…? She — and many other experts — have been wrong about anomalies: As the subtitle says, it’s not just dust.

Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, this book contains something to shock (or at least annoy) almost everyone who thought they understood ghost photos.

Written for beginning and intermediate ghost hunters, this 180+ page book tells you:

* How to select a camera.
* What settings to use.
* Where to take photos.
* How to decide if they’re really ghosts.

However, even professionals will find some unsettling ideas and disturbing evidence in this book.

Fiona invites you to try these same tests. Prove her wrong, if you can.

You may never look at “ghost photos” the same way, again.

In 75 more strange tales — by ghost hunters such as Jeff Belanger, Fiona Broome, Jeff Davis, Scott A. Johnson, Troy Taylor, and over a dozen others — you’ll discover a wide variety of creepy haunts.

In this book, Fiona delivers more chilling information about Gilson Road Cemetery… possibly the most reliably haunted cemetery in New Hampshire, just over the border from Massachusetts.

In Boogeymen at Brennan’s, Fiona describes several agreeable ghosts who haunt Brennan’s, one of New Orleans’ most beloved restaurants deep in the stylish French Quarter.  One of them is the chef who invented the classic dessert,  Bananas Foster, lighting up restaurants across America.

If you’re planning a ghostly journey around Louisiana, be sure to read Fiona’s description of haunted Houmas House.  Once the home of the man who designed the “stars & bars” flag, associated with the Civil War, this home is haunted by a variety of strange spirits from a little girl to an extraordinarily tall former slave.

Fiona also tells the story the intriguing Wentworth wraiths, the ghostly maids leave no footsteps in dusty corridors rarely visited by the public.

From nightmarish nights out to haunted colleges and “institutional apparitions” such as the chilling ghosts that haunt Waverly Hills Sanatorium, you’ll find plenty of great stories — and reasons to sleep with the light on — between the covers of this can’t-stop-reading book.
