Orbs for some reasoning seem to be the most photographed by not only by all  Ghost Hunters but by more and more people lately, in which we are sent many for our consideration.  Please though keep the photos coming to us for consideration of being hosted on this website.  

When investigating any area it is always a good idea and back up to prove any photographic evidence by also taking video's, and 35 mil. still camera, not just always from a digital camera.   Some digitals cameras do have and can alter pictures.   We  always carry all of them with us,  including  disposable 35 cameras with flash. 

Most orbs it used to be  believed  that they were a great find on any investigation, but they have many causes though.  Alot of these are and we do find when analized are just dust particles, bugs, and some can be found to be caused from the environment mainly from any humid type of situations...... in which we do try to prove or to disprove.   

We try when entering any place of investigation not to disturb to much of our surroundings and to always take a lengthly series of pictures from both digital and still cameras.  Plus we do note any humidity in the air, and we NEVER allow anyone to ever smoke on any investigations. 

We do hope to ad some good examples of the above and what exactly to be aware of when taking pictures.
