I'm looking for anyone that can give me some help here. I'm new at ghost hunting (okay i haven't started yet and i don't plan to until it gets warmer). I have no clue where to start. Help me please! (I figure you should also know that i'm 15. To early to start?)
Start by reading books and internet sites like your doing it seems. then maybe make a list about what hauntings realy interest you the most. That may be sorted out by where you live (how close you are to the hauntings). Or maybe how acesable the haunting is.

First of all you can ghost hunt during the day time. Ghosts are active during the day as well as night.
I would suggest a cemetery. There is always some spirits around there. Go early in the morning or later before they close. Take your tape recorder to try to get evps. If you are going to take photos, go on a very cloudy day, do not use a flash but have a tripod or make sure your camera is steady. Mausoleums are also a good idea.
A church is a good idea, See my photo from St. Paul’s Cathedral. In a church, use both flash and no flash and compare photos. (I had planed to be looking into more churches)
If you have any historical locations near you, that is a good place to check out.
Also photograph the outside of empty buildings, (don’t go in) in old abandon locations sometimes you can get a photo of someone looking out of the window.
Don’t get down hearted if in the beginning you don’t get anything. I have been to locations where I had to visit 4 times before I started to get anything. Sometimes the spirit needs to get to know you.
Carefully look at your photos, in the beginning I had missed seeing the spirits because I was not sure what I was seeing until someone taught me what to look for.
