First of all, you have to actually believe in ghosts and spirits and hauntings to even consider whether or not they are able to be photographed or filmed. Today's sci-fi reality TV shows are full of hauntings and paranormal activity captured on camera - but is it real? And what exactly is shown on the footage?
Believe it or not, tons of websites exists with instructions on how to photograph and videotape ghosts, but if you do some research, you'll find that ghost imaging is an actual photography technique that can produce an image of an object even though the camera cannot see it. Another photography technique known as orb optics captures unexpected images, which are usually circular and sometimes have trails or "Orb backscatter" but also sometimes have a paranormal interpretation. A range of unverified supernatural phenomenon, including ghosts are included in the description of Orb backscatter paraphernalia.
So what about video cameras? Can they capture ghosts? A technique known as "video feedback" is a way you can use a home video camera or perhaps even a security camera (see some wireless security camera options at www.HomeSecurity101.com) to see lots of weird images and activity (paranormal, perhaps?) on the screen. Videographers are mixed about whether or not this is actually possible or just a manufactured demonstration like the ghost imaging technique in photography. Their main consensus on the subject is to have decent to expert video skills to avoid capturing false images.

There are two distinct camps when it comes to ghosts: those who believe, and those who don't. Are you brave enough to visit some of these reportedly haunted destinations?
The Myrtles Plantation is often named as one of the country's most haunted places. Located in Louisiana, many people claim to have seen the ghosts of slaves, children and adults on the property.
Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is another spot that has a decent chance of turning a skeptic into a believer. Many paranormal groups, most of whom come away having experienced something, have investigated it. It closed as a penal institution in 1971, but is now a National Historic Landmark and tours are given throughout the year.
Savannah is a city with many ghostly hot spots. The Olde Pink House, The Moon River Brewing Company and the Olde Harbor Inn are just a few of the sites likely to be visited on any one of the many ghost tours given throughout Savannah.
Maybe you're a skeptic when it comes to ghosts only because you've never seen one. Make it a point to visit some of these historic and ghostly sites, and see if you can remain a skeptic!

Forget all the mumbo-jumbo about garlic, candles and exorcists reading Biblical passages. You want to get rid of a ghost and not a demon. Ghosts are different from demons and don't take as much work for removal. Here is what must be done if you find your home is haunted.
Call the Old Owner
Many ghosts follow specific people around wherever they go. The ghost you found may belong to the person you bought the house from. The ghost might be a favorite aunt or cat. Call the previous owner, and tell him that he left something behind. When the old owner drops in, show him an old butter knife or a trinket. This is part of the ruse. When he insists that the object isn't his, that's fine. The ghost and the former owner have been reunited, and the ghost will follow him home.
Rearrange the Furniture and Paint the Walls
Ghosts like familiar surroundings. By moving the furniture around and painting the walls different colors, you break supernatural bonds. The ghost will feel confused and leave.
Open the Door
Open the door, and tell the ghost to leave. Be firm and demanding. Tell the ghost that he doesn't belong here. Ghosts don't hang around people who have no interest in them.
