Can you capture your energy in a photograph?

Can you capture your energy in a photograph?

This Saturday is #WorldPhotoDay, and we at McNab’s want to reward you with a month’s worth of energy tabs! We want you to capture your energy in a photograph. Why not be more experimental and dazzle people by going to a place to capture your energy? Go somewhere cool, do something fun, and even bring your dog… It doesn’t matter! All you have to do is enter:

Here is some inspiration:

Did you know that all living creatures generate and emit radiations? Photons of light, electromagnetic frequencies, heat, sound, and scent are all emitted from our bodies in direct relationship to our internal states. This remarkable, subtle system of exchange contains a wealth of information. But is there a way to capture it?

If you have ever taken a photo and found a weird colour or pattern that came from nowhere, you may have just captured your energy in a photograph.

Whether you believe it or not it’s undeniable that these pics are really interesting!

Where did this idea come from?

Back in 1970, a man named Guy Coggins built a camera based on the studies of Semyon Kirlian who studied this phenomenon, developing a way to capture it every time. The resulting images of living objects were physical proof of the life force, or aura, which allegedly surrounds all living beings.

There are supposedly about 100 of these cameras in existence.

The portraits are stunning, strange, and so cool, thanks to a double exposure that first takes a portrait and then the aura.

These photographs have been the subject of much myth and controversy over the years. The inventors were convinced that these photos could accurately predict emotional and physical states and could be used to diagnose illnesses.

Curious about the human energy fields? Take a look at this Ted Talk by Linda Turner, talking about how reading human energy fields can help to diagnose illness.


Can’t get hold of one of these cameras? Here’s how you can do this yourself!

#1 – Go someplace energetic.

Find someone that you truly feel you have a loving connection to, and go somewhere special with your camera in a bright place. Do something fun!

#2 – Get rid of the clutter.

As auras tend to be very subtle, it can be hard to capture them when there’s too much clutter in the background. After taking a few photos, find one with a solid colour or surface behind.

#3 – Pick a close up.

It’s not a good idea to zoom your camera into your subject, as this will reduce the clarity of the image. It’s important that you make the picture as clear as possible so that it will be easier to see the person’s aura. The closer you are to the subject, the better your chances are of capturing the person’s aura.

#4 – Make use of light.

Take a pic in the daytime or set up lights or lamps around the person, as this will improve the visibility of their aura.


By following these steps, analyse the light fringe around the person, and you will be able to take clear photos that may show the aura of the person you photographed.


The following are the different aura colours and their meaning:

RED – Red energy is a healthy ego, but in a negative light, this energy can give way to anger, nervousness, and anxiety.

ORANGE – This colour represents good health, excitement and vitality. Orange energy is creative, productive, sociable and courageous, but negatively, it can give way to addictions and stress.

YELLOW – Yellow is the colour of awakening, inspiration, optimism, intelligence, and easy-going nature

GREEN – This colour also depicts a love of nature, animals, and people.

TURQUOISE – It is a compassionate, sensitive colour.

BLUE – This cool, calm colour, produces loving, caring, sensitive, and intuitive energy.

INDIGO – This colour signifies deep feeling, sensitivity and intuition.

VIOLET – This colour is visionary, intuitive, magical, and artistic.

BROWN – Represents greed and self-centeredness.
