There's this photo in Greg Bishop's book Project Beta that supposedly shows a Sandia Labs facility that only appears camouflaged when it is photographed.

Does anyone know more about this?
Is this sort of "photographic camouflage" possible or in use today?
Is this just more silly spook games? (Rick Doty is the one that told Bill Moore to take the photo
)
Were the negatives or photographs tampered with?
Is there even a building in the photo or is this just a photo of some hills?





This was the Sandia Labs facility hidden away near Coyote Canyon. While on a tour of Kirtland Air Force Base, Richard Doty told Bill Moore to take a picture of the area, which is composed of a large group of buildings. The section at the middle right, which looks like a large snowdrift, is all that was left of the complex when the film was developed. Doty would not reveal how this photographic camouflage was achieved. (Bill Moore)

That is pretty wild. I can see where the buildings are. I just wonder if they were painted white or sand colored, being in the dessert, and the black and white photo somehow didn't pick them up. You can see rectangular black 'windows or doors?' in there. Interesting concept if it is intentionally done. I never heard anything like that.

Just a photo of some hills - well ... and those 14 ninjas too.

OP says a Sandia Labs facility 'Project Beta'. Not necessarily the Sandia Labs complex well known today.

It is not a photo of "just some hills". Obviously you didn't look close enough.

I know - there are obviously 14 ninjas in that photograph.


I can see the snowdrift and it does not look like buildings to me. I can see the telephone poles.

I heard about this place. Some show did a segment on it. Was it Fact or Faked? Any way, the "snow drift" appears to be over contrasted, like the upper left of frame. And just below the "snow drift" is a road (horizontal line bisecting photograph) and two telephone poles along it. So go there and see...

Oh ok. Sorry, My mistake. I thought you didn't see them.

After looking at your image more closely, i do now see what the intention here was.

So now I bring your attention to this image.


Probably the same type of painting, only this one is in color and not in a remote moddled background.
My opinion is that this is how the illusion was achieved.

Very Interesting OP! I can def see where the buildings have been camo'd. Star for you!

I don't think so, that's just an optical illusion that only works from that specific angle (where the camera is located), if you look at it from anywhere else the illusion doesn't work. Would that be useful against satellites and spy planes overhead?

What I assume from the description of the photo is that the buildings look normal to the human eye, but to a camera they are disguised. The author refers to it as photographic camouflage.

Hey where can I get one of those?
Does it leave the atmosphere too?

I call hoax, assuming this was a traditional film photograph.

A piece of film is exposed to light similar to the human eye (if there was no flash used), I dont see how the image could be changed in the camera and not the eye.

The sensor on a digital camera is basically an array of sensors that collect intensity of light and convert it into an electrical charge, which then becomes the photo. So it seems plausable that they could some how send out a frequency invisible to the eye, but picked up by the digital sensor that messes with that conversion process and makes it look like a snowbank - In theory this could be done from any angle. (unlike the photo of the car, simillar to the popularized chalk/sidewalk drawings everyone gets in their email lol)


sooo yeah I call bunk.

Thats the site I was looking for, but had t settle for the invisicar instead, good job.

In my opinion, that is all we are seeing with Sandia labs in the OP photo. As far as being able to be seen with the eye and camo from a camera, I'm not buying.

Sandia has been at the forefront of camouflage technologies in the past, and that is all this is, buildings camouflaged from sight, including the naked eye. Its just easier to see things when they are in 3D than in 2D on a photograph.

I'm sure its real. This place is not unique. Large bases and compounds have been doing this since at least ww2. Lockheed martin did it with a lot of their factories back then becauuse they were strategic targets.
