Aura Pictures and Photography
I am skeptical of aura photography. This involves using a machine to generate a picture of a person and their energy field at the same time, and then using this information to make an interpretation of the energy (which is often computer generated).
The reason is, you need vision and intuition to accurately perceive an aura. A machine only has one of these.
I can pick up a regular old happy snap of a person and see their aura. But I need to use my own vision and intuition to do this.
Perceiving and interpreting auras goes beyond science. In my opinion, while a machine can accurately copy the energy field around an object, it cannot capture the intricate detail like a person can.
A machine cannot tap into the depth of a person's aura for their story. This can only be done with intuition.
With that being said, I have researched the more popular aura picture devices.
Kirlian photography was the first type of aura photography that had any merit, and all subsequent types of energy pictures appear to be variations of this technology.
Biofeedback and spectrophotometric technologies have also been used to produce aura imaging machines with mixed credibility.They seem to be variations of the Kirlian theme: putting a person or object within an electrical circuit and capturing the electrical charge of the first layer of the aura. Then overlaying the image of the electrical circuit on a picture of a person or object.
Infrared technology works a different way, detecting heat from the body's energy and conveying this in color. But again, the depth of analysis isn't possible by using a machine. Intuition is necessary.
There are also a lot of swindlers who claim to have machines that capture auras, which in fact are cheap contraptions which produce even cheaper results.
I have seen "aura photo" booths at psychic expos that actually have colored lights - like Christmas lights - running along the edge of a backing screen. People stand in front of this screen to have their photo taken.
The resulting photo features the person at the center, with softened fuzzy colored lights at the edge. You don't need to be Einstein to figure out what's going on there!
