Ghost hunting is gaining momentum, not only for Americans but also for the world, as a favourite pastime. It seems that with the advent of rare television programs, worldwide audiences are becoming more and more involved. Also, they are involved in an amazing number. For beginners and veterans, it seems that ghost hunting is not going to happen anytime soon. Is it weird?
Ghost hunting, or unusual investigations, as they are commonly called, is fun, daunting, and challenging. Imagine photographing a riot or a riot in a movie or a video, and sharing it with the world. It can also be dangerous. Exploring a place at night, with little or no light, in an unfamiliar area is dangerous. So it is much better to be prepared.
Understanding safety issues, ethics, law, and employment is an important part of an unusual investigation and should be included in every initial investigation. Remember, you want to be a ghost hunter and not a ghost hunter, so security is essential.
Be prepared for emergencies. Carry emergency items in all investigations, such as a flashlight, first aid kit, cell phone, bottled water, and extra batteries. Extra clothing is not a bad idea either. Personal safety is paramount, your personal safety and the safety of everyone in the group. That’s right, group.
No one should go alone to hunt ghosts. There is safety in numbers. I recommend no less than three members of the group, more if possible, to have one member as a group director. When recruiting your team members, find people who have the same enthusiasm as you, and who have the same values and values. Assign each member a specific task, and know where each member of the team is at any time, during the investigation. Plan your efforts, and above all, be professional. Having a good sense of humour is another important factor in ghost hunting.
It is unlikely that you will photograph the evidence every time you investigate, so it is important to maintain a high standard of conduct. Remember you need permission to return to the site for further investigation. Always leave the site in the same condition as you found it. Never disturb or destroy any part of the site.
Good manners and respect for the site owner will go a long way in future investigations. Always be an expert, which brings us to legal issues.
Legal issues are often overlooked by early investigators. It is not something that most people imagine, but it is something that needs to be considered. For example, if you are investigating a cemetery, give the local authorities a head start. It has never been painful. Give them a complete, written, detailed explanation of your intentions before your investigation.
This will help when curious neighbours call when they see you and your team at the cemetery at night. Authorities do not need to send a vehicle to investigate, and thus, disrupt your ghost hunt. Everyone is happy. Never jeopardize the integrity of the team. Be professional, even after an investigation.
After the investigation, be kind. Thank each team member and client. Keep track of all inquiries regarding the evidence and information found there. Present to the client with a well-designed package, and save your copy and team archive.
Ghost hunting can be a rewarding and exciting pastime for anyone who maintains safety, ethics, law, and professionalism. Fun Hunting.
