A seemingly contradictory statement
that may nonetheless be true.

Picture 1 taken on 20-7-2007 at 22-28-03
This is a control picture taken at Plas Teg on the long gallery (just after picture 2 - the interesting one)
There was no camera flash used, the digital lighting is the only source of light on all the pictures.
The exposure time is 2 seconds, the ISO setting 160, the lens aperture is at f2.8.
The picture shows a laser, positioned at the far end of the gallery, pointed towards the camera operator.
The camera operator rested the digital still camera on top of a tripod mounted camcorder. When he pressed the shutter release, the camera moved slightly, causing the laser light to become a red trial of light. This is a good point of reference.
As the exposure continued for the timed two seconds and the camera was held still. The faint image of two statues was captured in the picture. There is nothing paranormal or unexplainable on this image.

Picture 2 taken on 20-7-2007 at 22-27-26

The camera set-up and mode of use is exactly as picture 1, the trail of red laser light is slightly different as the button is pressed.The streaks of light from top right to bottom left are interesting.
The digital lighting system contains rows of fixed, blue and ultraviolet LEDS that correspond with the lines seen on the image.
The intensity of the colour of the streaks changes from the middle downwards and the width also correspondingly widens.
This could indicate movement away from the light source that would account more area to be illuminated. It could also indicate the object rotating from the centre.
I would also consider the streaks to fast moving as there are no breaks in the lines that would be evident from the pulsed lighting.

Picture 3 taken on 27-07-2007 at 00-25-33

Location - a hotel in North Wales.

Is once again a control picture, this area is a doorway into a previously blocked off bedroom.
The exposure time is 3.2 seconds, the ISO setting 160, the lens aperture is at f2.8.
During both photographs the camera flash was turned off, the only light source is from the digital light unit.
The strange blue/white area is a reflection of a paint stain on the wall

Picture 4 taken on 27-07-2007 at 00-25-48

The camera set-up and mode of use is exactly as picture 3, this time the camera was set to take two pictures sequentially.
Due to digital camera processing time the images are 13 seconds apart.
In the top right first appears a small streak of green light, there is also a second longer streak of green light leading to a 'misty formation'. There was no green light used at that time.

In this picture the reflective stain is less visible, perhaps because the 'misty object' has absorbed more of the light.

There is also two white lights - eyes?

Is the misty object the wings of an insect or moth? - if it is why are they only seen in one place and what produced the this green lines.

This picture was taken after a medium Sheena Young from UK-Paranormal had been in contact with a spirit, at that location.
Although I don't claim this as a picture of a ghost, it does appear similar the typical image portrayed as a ghost in old photographs.

Further investigations using this equipment will be on going and comments about the pictures are welcome.
This new photographic technique can be repeated in any location using most digital cameras with long exposure settings.

DIGITAL LIGHTING supplied by Paradox Electrinics

Digital lighting is a new advanced electronic lighting system that pulses blue, ultraviolet or infrared LEDS at chosen frequencies.
It is for use specifically on paranormal investigations, but will have uses on 'other' types of investigation.
In common with all the equipment I design it is new and unique, specifically designed to add a new opportunity to capture real evidence of paranormal activity.

After much study I speculate that to see, photograph or record a ghost new methods of illumination are needed. A ghost or the spirit world might existence at a different frequency or wavelength to ours. Blue and ultraviolet light pulsed at the correct frequency might be the key to repeatable scientific investigation.

Most paranormal investigators relay on infrared night vision camcorders and standard 'flash' illuminated pictures that produce nice images of the location under investigation, that yield very few 'unusual' images.
By using new digital lighting methods, there are now new opportunities for real photographic evidence gathering.
The digital lighting can be used with digital still cameras, camcorders in normal day light setting and night vision mode, and to enhance our eyes in their 'night vision' mode.
