Experimenter’s guide for building your own Kirlian photography equipment saving you hundreds of dollars. Use your own digital camera, iPhone or low light video camera to capture the hidden electrical portraits of many common objects.
Kirlian photography is a high voltage contact print style process.
Kirlian images capture the luminous corona discharge between the subject and a high voltage electric field. No external light source is used in creating these images. The interaction between the object and the high voltage field produces a unique image via the corona discharge.
