Hello, The title is pretty self explanatory but i have some questions from people more well educated in the art of hunting the para normal than
myself, but first, a bit of back ground on why this interests me.
I believe myself to have had several paranormal experiences in my life. Two in my own home town in Central Scotland and one in Preston in the North
West of England. I posted a thread a couple years ago about these about the experiences back home but not about the one in England, But it happened at
a place called Whittingham Asylum, Near Goosnargh in Lancashire. Now i do not know what it is about this place but something draws me to it. Any time
i am down in that area i need to go. I cannot explain why it is just a strange and eery place but it is like a magnet to me. Any way... I digress.
So i guess the first question would be why ?... The answer is the sort of paranormal ghost hunting tv show is absolutely tragic, I used to watch alot
of these types of programmes now i do not as there is no real evidence in them, Shows like Most Haunted and Ghost Hunters and stuff. I find these all
to be so fake that it is beyond belief. There is only one show i actually still watch and that is Ghost Adventures. But anyway i ain't looking for
some flash TV show or anything i just do not feel enough people are actually out there trying to document real evidence. I want to document some real
stuff. I have emailed some local places of interest here in the Forth Valley region but no replies yet ( Thought i would go down the legal route this
time as have been caught trespassing twice ). I will be getting a Youtube up and running in the coming months after i have got a few investigations
under my belt and have some things too post.
So what do i believe ?.... Well i believe in Ghosts to an extent. I believe in the paranormal and i believe if the conditions are correct and just
right we can interact and some times even see them. I do not believe in Psychics or Mediums though i find that hard to believe. I know some people on
this site believe themselves to be psychic or clairvoyant and i mean no offence to these people it is just something i have not experienced first hand
yet there for do not believe.
So why am i posting this here ? ..... Well firstly once i start posting videos i will have an audience ( Hopefully
) and secondly although i am quite knowledgeable about the subject i have little experience in capturing this phenomena. So that is where you guys
come in i suppose.
So what i ask is this, Will anyone be interested in my videos and findings. If i do in fact capture anything weird lol ?
And what equipment should i invest in to start out, I am investing in a infra-red camera to video with in the dark and a couple of digital recorders
for a start. I have a fairly decent job so money isn't an option and i work night shift so i stay in the night shift pattern most of the time so most
of my research will be done in the dark of night when i am actually awake. So what other equipment do you guys recommend also, what brands of cameras
and recorders will give me the best advice. I don't really want go to mad at first because i don't really want to blow alot of money on this if it
is going to amount to nothing. Probably setting myself an equipment budget of around £1500 spread across the next three months to buy equipment. So
guys help me out
Any more questions just ask and anyone want to recommend some-where please don't be afraid to. The main places i am about are Central Scotland and
the North West of England round about Preston area.
