Presentation Summary:

This presentation goes into the most popular forms of "ghost & spirits" that are allegedly caught on camera & video. We'll take a look at examples from ghost hunting groups and famous ghost photos, and compare them to recreations. We'll break down how the camera - both still and video - capture these anomalies and ghost hunters misinterpret the images.

Unfortunately, we have to cancel Kenny's talk due to inclement weather. We hope to have Kenny back at a future date. We apologize if anyone has been inconvenienced, but we had no choice in canceling.
