This is not a thread about Kirlian photography.

Pretty simple question. Can an 'aura' be seen about a person/creature in a normal photograph?

Unsure really, i have seen orange and yellow slight tints about people at night, but not from the street lamps, i once went to Waverley Abbey in England with a group to explore at night. I noticed that the spiritual person who was with us had a tint of yellow about him.

I made the point on that night to mention it, he said something about some pressure point meditation thingy, i couldn't remember what he called it, sounded like chuck or something lol.

Im not a spiritualist so i wouldn't know what he was on about, but i was hooked on his story.

I guess it would depend on what spectrum the camera can shoot in. Regular camera I would say no.

Hmmm well.

I think it depends what you mean by aura, if you mean a physical thing like a light or a colour then I would say obviously not or we would have noticed by now.
If you mean aura in the sense of this dictionary definition

1. a distinctive and pervasive quality or character; air; atmosphere: an aura of respectability; an aura of friendliness.
2. a subtly pervasive quality or atmosphere seen as emanating from a person, place, or thing.

Then I would say that you maybe can, often you can look at photographs and get a feeling of warmth or friendliness or even a sense of evil from it. Whether that is something intrinsic about the photo though or just your association with it I couldn't say

Edit to add as a point to InfaRedMan as it seems appropriate

Digital cameras actually pic up a lot of near infared light, you can see this by point one at a remote control pressing one of the buttons and taking a pic, the light from the remote will come out of the image.

I'm referring to the metaphysical concept of auras.

No, but I've recently seen my own aura. Also, I notice the aura of one other person too.

My own aura I saw looking at my hands. It was bluish white. I saw the aura briefly around a stranger's face recently it too was a bluish white.

That has never happened to me before, so I'm not sure what to make of it or what it means.

I've always been able to see aura's around people, some are much larger and brighter than others. You can test it on yourself in a dark room~ slowly put your hands together and move away gently, after a few times you will see a glow between your hands and surrounding them. Mostly the aura's I see are just one colour, only a few times I have seen bright colours, and sometimes you can see a very small aura which I have taken to mean the person is not 100% healthy (from my experience).

As for picking it up on a camera, I dont fully understand the whole concept of what an aura is (as I said before I thought everyone could see them) so I wouldnt know if it needs a special lens...however, I have never picked up an aura in any photo I have ever taken.
