As a frustrated/disgruntled UFO believer, due to the lack of evidence provided by many of the latest posts in the forum I have some advice for those
who have an eye open to the sky at most times.
Always carry a video or digital camera with you. Nowadays both are small enough to put in your trouser pocket or glove compartment of the car.
If your camera can take photographs in RAW, use it.
Make sure your camera has been set up to capture the date and time of the shot in the exif information.
If you are lucky enough to see something take a photograph, look for a witness/witnesses to collaberate, take more pics then ask the witnesses if they
have taken photographs as well and get their addresses if they are willing to give them.
Go home, copy the photographs to a PC if you have one. DO NOT ! change the RAW files to jpeg, instead make a copy of the original then change the copy
to jpeg for posting.
Post them up as soon as possible with your original post to ATS. If you post a thread without the pics you will be flamed and why would you even
consider doing so without the evidence to substanciate your claim.
Some other things to consider:
Try to get a building or person into one of the photographs as reference to scale. Even better, with permission get a photograph of your witnesses if
they are also taking photographs.
Take your time, breath slowly and deeply, it helps steady the camera hand. Use a gate, tree or roof of your vehicle to steady the camera while taking
Finally, remember that here on ATS some people will try to shoot your claim down and they may be correct in assuming that the UFO you think youve
found is merely a plane or some other normal occurance.
Im sure they are other posters on here who may like to add to the advice or equipment that you might like to carry so feel free to add.
