So you’re trying to take pictures of ghosts? Sometimes they are just right there in the image, but most of the time you might have to adjust the contrast and the colors to really get the full picture.
My friend once took a picture of a ghost she had seen on her iPhone. I couldn’t really see what she was looking at in the image, but when we enhanced the image for contrast it blew me away. A face emerged from the dark photo as clear as could be. It was intense!
You might find more in your photos if you can tune the contrast a bit. There are a few great programs with which to do this.
One of the programs you might want to look into is Adobe Lightroom. This is an affordable image enhancement software program that will enable you do amazing things with your digital photographs. However, even a free program such as Gimp could help you out enormously.
You could use either a Mac or a PC. I really think there isn’t much of a difference although you’ll find many people who will say one or the other is better. Whatever suits your lifestyle would be the best choice for you. If you do use Windows please ensure that you’re protecting your computer with security programs that protect against viruses and spyware. You can find some of those programs reviewed on this website.

If you’re looking for Ghosts in San Diego, then look no further than the Whaley House. In fact, the Whaley House has earned the title “the most haunted house in the US”. It’s also one of only two houses in California recognized by the U.S. commerce department as being haunted. It’s creepy, and my friend has taken what I consider the MOST reliable ghost photo I’ve ever seen (because I know her personally, and I know she didn’t “doctor” the photo and she took it on her iPhone).
The structure sits in Old Town San Diego, an area known for it’s Mexican Mission style and theme-park atmosphere. It’s a strange place for the most haunted place in America, basically because it sits amidst one of the most festive and family friendly atmospheres in the city.
But several well-known psychics and ghost hunters have called it one of the most reliably haunted places in the US.
One of the most famous encounters was by a San Diego police officer nearly 30 years ago. He was called to the site in response to someone’s report of a lady crying. The declassified report states that he came across a lady at the back of the house dressed in period clothing. She turned around and smiled at him, but when he shone the flashlight at her she disappeared.
Other police reports have been filed too, in response to people hearing voices and accidentally setting off alarms.
I plan on going to this house soon and taking photographs with my Canon.
