Armed with a Canon Rebel XS, Clarissa uses its RAW format to capture photos of families against her studio backdrops or outside in scenic surroundings including beaches, forests, and municipal bus stations.

Diverting his attention from a particularly active nest of eptesicus fuscus, he began photographing the orb, which made no attempt to flee or conceal itself. Hansen continued to document the orb as it reappeared over his house, each night shrinking slightly “as though passing slowly into the spirit world,” Hansen observed. On particularly cloudy nights, the orb would not be present, prompting Hansen to speculate that ghosts may be allergic to thunder.
