Default Making Kirlian Photographs and Building Your Own Equipment

http://www.imagesco.com/articles/kirlian/01.html

The process is simple. Sheet film is placed on top of a metal plate, called the discharge or film plate. The object to photograph is placed on top of the film. If the object to be Kirlian photographed is inanimate, such as a coin or leaf, a earth ground is connected to the object. See figure 1 below. High voltage is applied to the plate momentarily to make an exposure. The corona discharge between the object and discharge plate passes through and is recorded onto the film. When the film is developed you have a Kirlian photograph of the object.

The Kirlian process, being a contact print process, doesn't require the use of a camera or lens. However when a transparent electrode is substituted for the discharge plate it is possible to use a standard camera (with a bulb setting) or video camera.

DAMN IT!!! Two more really interesting sites to check out. Jeeeez, I'll never get to bed at this rate. I've got some matches somewhere to prop my eyes open. Maybe I'll just brew up some more coffee. My mouth already tastes and feels like the bottom of a birdcage.

I'm struggling to understand? how can anybody claim they are seeing chi energy when the activation for the corona effect is from a high frequency electric?
Got to say, they are pretty though.
