  • Yes, but most of the time people mistake pieces of dust or bugs as "orbs". But yes, I do believe in them.

  • i was a member of a professional paranormal investigative team before marrying my husband. A lot of times orbs are very hard to prove and disprove. it depends on where the picture was taken. Orbs are usually more depictable in person or on video then on still photos.

  • I believe in them ;) My mom often goes to the cemetery on Halloween and catches really good photos of them!

  • yes. I felt my house spirit and took 4 pics in rapid sucession and the first one had them,but the 3 after didn't.

  • Absolutely not. The "phenomena" you are seeing is just a spec of dust or dirt on the lens of the camera.

  • I was photographing a family with my digital SLR, and when we went to view them on the monitor, there were one or two "orbs" around the youngest child in the photo in EVERY photo.

    I assumed there was dust on my sensor/lens/etc. and was preparing for a re-shoot, but the mother told me that EVERY photo her child had been in since birth had at least one "orb" in it--mostly on or around her head and face. No sense in re-shooting, she said, it'd just happen again.
