Fabricated Photography?  Sounds so professional, yet Dr. Suess tone wink.gif

Anyways, this is a big subject that I like to talk about because it raises peoples awareness on the subject, so they can know things like apparitions (common ghost) are not the only types, as the most common are probably orbs!  But, one of the favorites of mine are the ones from this guy that sold them for about $40 each (excuse the numbers)

Yay! One of my favourite threads up and running!

Here's one I took on Saturday. As usual came up by accident.

This is a photo, taken at night with a digicam, of a window with fabricated spiderwebs on it (for Hallowe'en) without a flash.
Without the flash the web looks like a ghostly ecto mist thing. smile.gif

IPB Image

Even looks like a face in there. smile.gif

I have been dying to have a go at trying the photoshop fabricated, so here are my attempts. Obvious fabrications.

The house is Battlecrease Mansion home of Jack the Ripper suspect James Maybrick. The face I used is that of Maybrick himself to add some credence to the fabricated.

I added the watermark in order to stop it turning up on the net one day as REAL!!!. rolleyes.gif

I have photoshopped 2 poses Of Maybrick in each pic.


IPB Image
Same again only different positions for the image.

In this one I have superimposed the bride onto the Bride Statue.

my favourite one another bride
Placed the same bride in a cemetery.


glad of any input as to how believable or unbelivable they may be lol.

Here is one I just fabricated, it took 5 minutes to do.. I used ordshall and Lady Jane Grey.
I know I have seen one or two similiar to this that are supposedly genuine.
I have learned one thing from having a go at faking........Never take any pic at face value lol.

Wow, Deb!  That's another great example of fabrication at its best!  Impressive.  Great lesson - "never take any pic at face value".  Well said!

Nice touch, Deb! biggrin.gif I'm such a dork!!  It took me about five minutes to see the ghost in the second Battlecreek Mansion pic!

My favorite fabricated is a video clip from a site called My Son Peter.  The whole site/story was made up (I wanna say by an advertising firm?) and they've removed the video from the site since the last time I was there.  Does anyone have that clip saved by any chance?  If so, can you post a link??  I'd love to see it again!
Thanks!! cool.gif

Hey Gang,

Ooopsy, sorry.  I gotta start keeping track a little better.  I just realised I didn't come in here to clarify my picture.

You're sort of right in the sense that it's a double exposure.  This is done on a digital camera however so in order to be able to recreate the results of a double exposure, I set my camera on a tripod and extended my shutter speed to a couple of seconds, giving me enough time to get in to the shot, strike a pose and move out again.

It gave some pretty freaky results considering I was in my ghostly Halloween costume and was able to pull it off without motion streaks.  We really need to be careful of this possibility with our photography and supposed ghost photos given to us for perusal.  Particularly since the tripod gives the stability.

Imagine the results this could give in a cemetary?

Can someone please tell me the reason someone would go through the time and trouble to fabricated a photo?  All I can figure is they have no life and nouthing better to do.

Also would like to comment that being acused or harsh toward a new ghost hunnter can be very discourageing.  Being inexperenced does not mean being a fabricated.  I have saw some pretty harsh responses to newbies who are trying to learn.

smile.gif hi cinjensen,i guess they feel that if they can fabricate it then perhaps it doesnt exist at all, and thereby dispute all scientific efforts to explain otherwise, im concerned that you feel some new members are not being treated fairly;i have not seen any of this here perhaps if you do witness something that concerns you, you should contact admin,im sure our friendly mod squad will be able to sort it out for you wink.gif

This was made when me and my friend played with some sort of spark thing for our movie.  Looks kinda like a fabricated.

I'm still not sure how he did this... but here's one that my fiancee took of himself. He has a Lomo camera that just absorbs the natural light, it doesn't use a flash, he's always playing around with it and doing tricks with it.

I'm just going to link the photo since it's kind of large:
Trev Orb

Also, I posted these on the old old board, but why not post them again. Some that were unintentionally fabricated by myself.
Whoops, caught the car window rolled halway down:

Hi
Those who have posted fabricated pics here in this thread have done so purely to prove just how easy it is to fabricate a picture. None of those posted will ever be shown and claimed to be genuine ghost pics.

I had a go at fabricating just to see how easily it can be achieved. And yes it was very easy if you know how to use a graphics programme.
One thing I learned from doing the fabricated pic, was that you should NEVER take any pic at face value.

There are many many people out there who will fabricate pics and claim them to be genuine untouched photo's...knowing how they make them has helped my understanding of what to look for in a pic that is being offered for opinion, or as a true capture.

I do have a life and better things to do... but ghost study is my little bolt hole, and the the possibility of a true ghost turning up in a pic fascinates me, I therefore want to be able to rule out things I see in pics when trying to judge for myself whether that pic is genuine or fabricated.

Hope that goes some way to explaining why I had a go at fabricating a picture... it was basically just a research lesson.
