The images below are examples of a spider web captured at night with camera flash from  different distances ranging from 1.5 metres to a 1  centimetre away that enabled the camera to produce ghostly images.

This experiment suggests that the camera will only capture ghostly images generated by environmental sources such as a spider web from a distance that is less than 10 centimetres away be at day time or night time.

Therefore, it would make no sense if one were to suggest that a camera or video camera can pick up ghostly images that is generated by the environment from a distance more than a few metres away. Furthermore, this experiment suggests that a spider web does not generate ghostly images if captured from a distance of more than 10 centimetres away even taken with camera flash at night.

These series of images captured to proof that  a spider web and a spider only can be seen as a ghostly image when the distance is too closed to the camera lens..
