Orbs are believed to be ghosts in the form of balls of light. They are life forms that travel in groups and are believed to be the human soul or life force of those that once inhabitated a physical body here on earth. Psychics claim they talk to them on a regular basis, and ghost hunters encouter them quite frequently. It is said that they are those spirits that have willingly stayed because they feel bound to their previous life or previous location for whatever reason.
Ghostly orbs are the most photographed anomalies caught on film and can be quite photogenic. They can be completely transparent or display themselves in a bright solid form. It is not hard to capture them in their circular form. Small orbs take up the least energy and apparitions and fuller shapes use more energy.
Ghosts are normally harmless and have no desire to harm anyone. However, they have been known to disrupt lives by playing pranks and moving things, they are limited in the activities that they are able to carry out. Non-human forms, as well as evil spirits and demons, who never had a body have the ability to sway our thoughts and tempt our reasoning, this is why such equipment like ouija boards and other similar devices should not be used, as they are said to have the ability to open doors to other realms and attract eveil spirits. Other forms of ghostly phenomenon are:
* Vortex - funnel shapped appearance
* Ectoplasm - misty or foggy appearance
* Apparition - usually part or full shape of a ghost
They can be picked up on film and video, although, this can be quite rare.
Orbs can be produced by accident and can appear quite readily on film by the elements and conditions around you. Most orb photographs are merely the result of dust or even weather conditions such as rain ot humidity. Moisture, dust and airborne particles up close to the lens at the time of the flash can and will affect the results of your pictures.
*ALWAYS MAKE A NOTE OF THE CONDITIONS AROUND WHEN DOING PHOTOGRAPHY*
