I covered this in a recent vlog on my YouTube channel: Rhonda's Readings:
The three examples covered in this exercise were photos of deceased people, so mediumship was the tool used. Other tools used could be overhead clairvoyancy and psychometry.
The first step is to relax and clear the mind.
The second step is to tune into the energy of the people in the photo.
The third step is to note down what you pick up. You may see, hear, smell, feel or taste something.
