what do you think of those cameras that supposedly capture your aura on film?

Do you think there’s something in the camera or a special film that has the “aura” in it & just adds it to the picture of your aura “real” ?


  1. The camera is imaging what is sometimes called “Kirlian” energy.
    Every living thing, particular creatures with thinking minds (like humans), produce an electric field, usually concentrated around the head where the largest percentage of neurons and electrical activity is concentrated.
    That energy can be photographed with the right type of camera. Similar to cameras that can take infrared or UV photos.
    In addition, since since living creatures can conduct electricity, any electrical field around that person can create a small “discharge” that they might not feel but could be photographed. Some people claim to be able to actually see that energy field, perhaps because their visual cortex is more sensitive to that particular wavelength of energy.

  2. You can achieve the same effect in numerous ways, though not perhaps with all the same colors. Want your own? Take a plate of glass and spray it with canned hair spray (cheap hairspray will work just fine). Then hold your hand palm-up and lay the glass spray-side down on top of your hand while the spray is still wet. Leave it there until it dries. You have to leave the glass face-down with your palm – if you hold it upright, it won’t work as well – holding it upright will show you an aura that is over-extended in the upwards-direction.
    Once it’s dry, you can remove your hand and have a gander – this is the same effect at work in kirlian photography. You can color it on the opposite side of the glass if you like, though a more interesting way to get color is to add food dye to the hairspray when it’s fresh out of the bottle. Once dry, frame it on a white background and you’ll have your own kirlian print.
    For a bit of another interesting effect, you can take very thin sheets of plastic – many of them, as thin as they can be while still being firm enough to remain flat – and using different colors in the hairspray on several sheets, make a bunch and then group them together.
    Another effect can be attained by taking one that you’ve done on glass and baking it at around 400 degrees (F) or so – you’d want to put the glass in the oven before turning it on, however, or else placing cool glass in a hot oven will just make it shatter. Leave it on for about 5 minutes after it’s gotten really good and hot, then turn the oven off and let the glass cool before removing it. You’ll have a “scorched” aura-print.
    You can also achieve the “phantom leaf” effect by laying the glass spray-side up and pressing a leaf onto it, then with a razor blade, slicing a bit of it off and removing it. Then hold it upwards – spray-side down as with your hand – and let dry.
    Whether or not these are really “auras” is still the subject of debate in certain circles, but if you’re into that sort of thing it can provide some amount of interest while you pass the time. And while the techniques used in “real” kirlian photography produce much prettier imagery, the prints you make this way can be scanned and colorized in a photoshop or something similar for an effect every bit as stunning.

  3. Why don’t you just do a web search on “Aura Photography”. There are sites available to explain how they work. To buy they cost around AUD$6000.

  4. I think the idea of auras is pure fantasy so, by extension, any special camera that can be used to photograph them sounds like horse hockey.
