They say ghosts can be seen better in infrared light. There have been cases wherein unnatural beings not present on location of the shoot appear on camera LCD’s after being shot in IR.
That was however the farthest thing from my mind when I took an infrared picture of the old haunted Diplomat Hotel in Baguio City. I just thought that it might look interesting with all the huge trees surrounding the decrepit structure. And I wasn’t mistaken at all, it did produce a nice output.
But upon remembering the relationship between IR shots and ghostly apparations, I immediately zoomed in into the photo to check the windows for anything out of the ordinary.
