If it were me and I was seeking an encounter I'd be less worried about the equipment and more concerned with my own state of mind.
If a spirit won't "come out and play" in the first place, it doesn't matter if you have a $10 disposable camera or a $50,000 thermal imaging
rig... there's simply not going to be anything there to capture on film.
I would recommend getting plenty of rest the night before, and do whatever you can to be sure you are relaxed, alert and energized. If your visit is
going to be at night, consider napping during the day.
When you are on site, you need to trust you instincts. Things that you might normally not even notice under different circumstances may be much more
significant in a place with a lot of spiritual activity.
A glint of motion out of the corner of your eye, a change of mood without an associated cause, a change of temperature in one direction, a wierd
feeling in the pit of your stomach... there are many ways that a spirit can make itself known, and if it's token efforts are acknowleged and
respected, it might chose to put forth more effort at communication.
If you are really seeking an encounter, I would find a quiet place that "Feels right". Settle down. Get comfortable. Be quiet. Listen. "Feel."
Keep the lighting very dim if you can. Speak only occasionally, asking for a presense to make itself known, and give it a reason why it should.
BE RESPECTFUL. A ghost may be trapped in an area because of some horrible, unresolved circumstance in it's past. You should be compassionate and
understanding. How would you want to be treated if you died unexpectadly and found yourself confused, afraid and separated from everyone and
everything that you cared about?
I wouldn't recommend disturbing the area to try to provoke a resonse. That just seems like spiritual vandalism to me.
I've encountered some very powerful entities and while it might sound like fun to try to provoke some sort of tangible response, those entities play
by a different set of rules than we do and there could be unfortunate consequences should you get their attention in a bad way.
If I were attempting to make contact, I'd sit quietely, meditate, and imagine my body glowing a bright white in the dark, and radiating energy all
around. Like a candle in the dark, this energy can be seen for quite a ways, and a curious entity might come to investigate.
