aka High voltage electrical photography.

I have a device for shooting finger tips and have been doing lectures and photo sessions
for over 18 years around the Western US and Canada.


Taken durring a lecture at Everett CC
the photo proves I've been doing this a long time (my hair was brown!).


Metallic objects.  Sometimes it's fun just for art sake.

Above is a young woman's finger tip
while thinking about a very positive experience.
Everything beyond the white ring is outside the finger contact area.
I believe we are seeing gold balls moving along energy meridian lines.
Click on the picture above for all 12 shots in that series.

(finger tip) Before and After an Acupuncture treatment.
Click on the picture above to view various before/after images.

I am sliding my finger along the film for the 2 second exposure.
Note the blotching rather than smearing, possibily indicating a flickering of these colors.

The ends of a horseshoe magnet (not unlike a typical finger).

This leaf was picked and photographed (left image)
20 minutes later another picture was taken while
sending positive thoughts toward the leaf (right image).
Usually the energy intensity dies down over this period of time if left unattended.

This is the tip of a corkscrew shaped healing pendulum.

Book list and Web Sources

Many of these books and papers are out of print, however...
I have had good luck with used book searches through used book stores, libraries and the web.

The Secret Life Of Plants
Peter Tompkins & Christopher Bird, ISBN 0-06-091587-0
Remarkable information about plants as lie detectors, their response to music, their curative powers, and their ability to communicate with man.  The late Marcel Vogel (pictured below) had much to do with the experiments.  I had the pleasure to bring him to Seattle for a couple day long workshops (Seattle and Everett Washington).


                        I get a bear hug from the bear himself.        Marcel teaches a young girl how to use the crystal he gave her.

Kirlian Photography sources on the World Wide Web

(using Kirlian designed high voltage photography)

We have corresponded via email on electrode design ideas.

An interesting site, check out the camera for capturing motion.

A well done site.

In October of 1987 an article titled "Diagnóstico Oncológico Kirliangráfico", was published by the "Revista do Hospital das Forças Armadas
(ed. written by two doctors who were able to diagnose cancer by way of the Kirlian Photos)

(ed. starts his web page off with an explanation of the aura simulation vs real Kirlian and links to a Aura Simulation page describing the true process (see next item below).


Sources below are "Simulated Aura" camera's (also known as "Aura Art" )

Note: this technique often uses galvanic skin response to manipulate the colors overlaid on a Polaroid snapshot of the subjects head and should not be mistaken for authentic Kirlian Photography.  It's merely an artistic representation of what the aura might look like.  It's odd how many people have believed this method is Kirlian Photography or some other legitimate aura imaging process.
What did P.T. Barnum say?...

We at AURAGRAPH also produce Aura Sim Cameras...
1.These are not to be confused with Kirlian Cameras. These cameras produce simulation photographs based on the subjects Galvanic Skin Response. See our book "Understanding your Aura" for more information. Auragraph produces the SERIES 4 CAMERA Which is an automatic camera, of fully integrated design and produces a 3 1/4" X4 1/4" print on full colour Poloroid film.
2.The camera comes complete with heavy duty tripod and is user friendly.
(ed. speaks to both Kirlian and Aura Simulation techniques)

THE AURA IMAGING SYSTEM  This is a complete computer system which produces a photograph related to the aura.  To use this system a person sits and places their hand on a sensitive plate which detects electrical activity from the fingers and palm and translates this into a computer generated color photo.
(ed. at least they said “related to the aura" on their web page).
