* ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'', "The Tale of the Curious Camera": InspiredBy ''TheTwilightZone'' example, a gremlin haunts a camera and destroys everything it shoots, depicting just how in the photographs. TheHero tries to get rid of the camera, only to discover it's also a ClingyMacGuffin. TheHero manages to destroy the camera, but the gremlin just transfers itself to a ''videocamera'', which destroys everything it points at. When ''that'' gets destroyed, the ending shows that [[spoiler: the gremlin jumped into ''a computer'']].

* This is an area that's been of interest ever since the first primitive cameras emerged in the 1840's. Magazine/ForteanTimes, which discusses, catalogues and as often as not debunks this sort of thing, keeps a keen interest and its archives have got loads of examples.

Hold on, what's the funny blur on that photo? A double exposure? A moth? A smudge? Or could it be something more? Could it be a ghost lurking just outside normal human perception, or an ominous warning of disaster to come?

come? Or just something essentially [[Magazine/ForteanTimes inexplicable, random and Fortean]]?

* At the end of the fourth case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', Lotta does a group photo of everybody. She later says that she caught a ghost in the photograph, which makes her want to go back to paranormal photography. When we later see the photo, it shows Mia Fey standing beside the rest of the group.

* In ''VisualNovel/TheLetter'', one of the photos that Zach takes of Hannah ends up eerily distorted due to the ghost's presence. Trying to make another copy of it doesn't help.

* The CreepyPasta "[[http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/minor-corrections/ Minor Corrections]]" by Creator/{{Slimebeast}} is about a mail-in photo development lab that will attempt to "fix" any photo they think seems "incorrect", meaning anyone in the photograph who had died between the time the photo was taken and the time the lab received the film will be shown in their deceased state. [[spoiler:They can also predict imminent future deaths, unfortunately the narrator was too late to stop his father from hanging himself]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', a special ending [[spoiler:that replaces the GoldenEnding if you've finished a KillEmAll run beforehand]] contains a photo depicting the friendly NPC cast members with red X's over their faces, and the main character [[spoiler:replaced with the Fallen Child]]. Given context, it's strongly suggested that [[spoiler:the Fallen Child is either planning to steal Frisk's body and kill them all, or already has]].

* Played for laughs in an episode of ''Series/Community''. After wandering into a theater, Chang is told by a janitor that the theater had burned down years ago. Chang returns to the theater and confronts the audience, who tell him that the janitor died years ago. Chang's sanity begins to erode and he wonders if he himself is really alive or not. The end of the episode features a slow, [[Film/TheShining Shining]]-esque pan into a black and white photograph of people in 19th century clothing, including Chang... and then with a ''Main/ScareChord'', we see "Old Timey Photo Club, 2014."
