* In the first episode of ''Anime/{{K}}'', when HOMRA threatens the gangsters in the hotel, Kusanagi shows one of them a still of the murderer from the video on his phone, asking if it's someone they know, and it's obscured this way. This is before the main character, Shiro, is introduced. Later, we see that the murderer is Shiro - or at least looks a whole lot like him - causing him to have to prove his innocence, while being chased by HOMRA and other superpowered groups.

* The photograph of Fate and her mother in episode four of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Interesting because the secret isn't what Precia looks like -- she's shown in episode seven -- but that [[spoiler:she's smiling: the photo was taken before she went insane. Also, it's not really Fate in the photo, but her [[ParentalFavoritism sister]]''/''[[CloningBlues original]], although Fate has no clue.]]

* In the first ''MyTeacherIsAnAlien'' book, the heroes try to take photographs of their previous teacher being held in suspended animation inside an alien forcefield, in order to boost their case that their current teacher is, well, an alien. When developed, the photos show only a streak of light resembling a film flaw where the forcefield was.

* It is an iron law of [[Magazine/ForteanTimes Forteana]] that if anyone ever tries to take a photograph of a psychic or paranormal phenomenon, the resultant picture will be so fogged, out-of-focus, or suffer from camera shake, that it becomes ambiguous at best or practically worhless as evidence. Creator/AAPessimal Lampshades this in several stories. In ''All the Best Tunes?'', a ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fic to be found on [=AO3=], the angel Aziraphile and the demon Crowley (in New York music venue CGBG's in the middle 1970's) allow themselves to be photographed by a gushingly {{Yaoi}}-minded young photographer called Creator/RobertMaplethorpe, knowing the resultant pictures won't be worth a damn (or a blessing), ''however'' talented the photographer. In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5168754/1/Fishing-in-the-Streams-of-Time Fishing In The Streams of Time]]'', the Loch Ness Monster is also subjected to photographs. They don't come out well, either. In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6151465/1/Rag-Week Rag Week]]'', American billionaire cowboy Robert P. [=McCullouch=] tries to photograph a bridge which has mysteriously manifested in the Nevada desert, miles from any river. The photos fail, but he gets a good idea as to how to blow a few million dollars on a vanity project...
