EMAIL FROM JUNE 24, 2008

THE JEFF:
Processed and raw from cam.

Jeff Ritzmann was known as one of the best photo/video analysts in ufology. In addition to his keen artist’s eye, his understanding of how cameras worked, and his skill with Photoshop, he was an experiencer. Gaining clarity on what was identifiable and what was not was a personal priority for him.

When it came to examining truly anomalous footage, Jeff was the last person who would ever draw a conclusion as to what anyone was filming, himself included, beyond eliminating the knowns. We often joked about how with his experiences, legit footage, and ability to make incredible fakes, he could be raking in the bucks as the best damned charlatan ufology had ever seen. Instead, he stuck with being a truth-teller, which made him a pariah in the field–and a much needed one at that.

EMAIL EXCHANGE FROM FEB. 16, 2009

THE JEFF:
I never make much of small objects in photos, but the other day I had my digital camera with me outside shooting the house for my distant relatives to see. As I was walking back up to the house, I decided to shoot up in the air with the rain gutter in view…I didn’t hear any “voice” or instructions to do so, it just felt like there was something there.

We went to the grotto about an hour away yesterday, and I’d forgotten all about the pic I took up in the air. When I downloaded the grotto shots today I cam across it. Near the gutter, there’s an airplane clearly in the upper levels-as it has contrail so it’s WAY up there-but behind it is a ball. This ball seems to have a hotspot on it when you’re zoomed in, suggesting it’s a globe-like thing.

But, in the end it’s too small to really be able to tell. Just the idea that I got the urge to shoot and something was there is kinda interesting. Maybe I oughtta do it more often.

THE JER:
I can’t see anything beyond the contrail.  But yeah why not do more of that and see what happens? 

THE JEFF:
Here’s the zoom on the area I refer to, see attached.

THE JER:
Ah. I was looking at the wrong piece of sky. Is there any way that can be an artifact or with your super heroic powers of understanding cameras do you know that is something in the sky? As you know I don’t have these powers and so must ask.

THE JEFF:
Nah, it’s not camera defects…but, it could be anything in the sky. It’s definitely there, as the highlight corresponds to the sun angle.

THE JER:
I still don’t see even the contrail in the original. Was the first pic the right one?

THE JEFF:
Yeah. the contrail is right by the rain gutter. You’re probably zoomed in, back out a little to see the whole thing.

THE JER:
Oh, never mind I found it. I’m so fucking blind.

THE JEFF:
Hi.

EMAIL EXCHANGE FROM NOV. 12, 2009

THE JEFF:
Photo from Spangler’s Spring this weekend, which was looking into complete darkness, and no house, lights, cars or anything else. Had I seen any of that, I wouldn’t have taken the shot. I avoided looking in those directions. It’s weird.

THE JER:
Interesting. Is the little light in the upper left anything?

THE JEFF:
You see the bright light, and there are 2 little white ones too. I have no clue what any are. There’s no reason for them to be there whatsoever.

THE JER:
You didn’t even see the bright one while you were there?

THE JEFF:
I didn’t see shit, but black, in any of them. I purposefully shot into darkness. I have leveled the entire photo to the max, and there’s only the light – nothing else. Black.

THE JER:
Don’t yell at me.

EMAIL EXCHANGE FROM NOV. 18, 2009

THE JEFF:
Sorry for the shit quality. I used a work camera and it’s in the office. This is a low res shot pull off the image. I adjusted it to show best the image. It’s absurdly dark in the original form.

btw, it goes without saying you both keep this pic to yourselves until such time as I get done deconstructing it – this one has to be by the book, and I have to cover every possible angle…and I didn’t work 23 years in paranormal imaging analysis to blow it on my own.

THE JER:
I do see legs and hands. And I also think it looks like a female glancing to her upper left. (When I saw it before it was you holding it up to skype cam so I’ve got a better view here.)

I could also make a case for someone holding onto her right wrist and shyly hiding his face in her arm but that could be making something out of nothing.

THE JEFF:
I dunno. I thought the same about seeing another form in there holding a hand, so you ain’t alone there.

I need to get into it in channel specific data to see what else might be there. I also have to get alone time on the work machine with a 45 inch monitor to get better resolution. It’s gonna be a fine tooth comb deal for me. So far, it looks good in more than a few ways. But, I am puzzled by a couple things that don’t seem right – and are specific to this shot alone. I’ll elaborate on those in the report, but I’ll hold judgment until I understand what I’m looking at. Like I said, I’m sure I’d be under more scrutiny than most people for what I do, so it’s gotta be thoroughly gone over.

This is Jeff’s “Ghost Girl” photo taken at Mark Nesbitt’s Ghosts of Gettysburg Headquarters during our Paratopia roadtrip to Gettysburg, PA.

More To Come!
