Legends, Myths, Folkore or Superstitions About Photographs

I've googled all combinations of 'legends', 'myths', 'superstitions', and 'folklore' with 'photography', 'camera' and 'pictures'. All I'm getting are sites with pictures of places with history rich in folklore, galleries, etc. I also tried looking up ghost stories revolving around photographs and cameras, but all I got were sites with photos of ghost sightings.

What I'm looking for are legends, myths etc along the lines of the 'having your picture taken steals your soul' legend and things like that. I've even googled that, and met mostly dead ends.

The setting is modern day, small town America. But as the character who will be researching this has access to the internet and whatnot, it doesn't matter where the legends came from or anything like that. I'm just looking for any manner of mystic/occultish/whatever stories revolving around photography and pictures.

Thank you in advance for any help whatsoever!
