Thoughts
It's been too long since I wanted to try levitation photography. It's got such a surreal and believable effect to it, even though it's impossible to really fly like that. Finally got the chance while out with my sister and her friend for a little experimental shoot which was centered around dance, dreams and delicateness.

This is my older sister, Gillian (:

I appreciated the feedback I got on the other photo I uploaded yesterday despite it being something out of my usual, so I decided I will upload a couple more of this shoot here :heart:


Equipment
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM

Awh really I inspired you to try it? :meow:

The more you practice the better you will get :) Since I can't really explain how I did it, I did a little google searching to find something you could follow! I never came across it till today but it seems good (: [link]

Actually that's pretty good! :o

All you need to do is brighten up the darker areas (probably a result of the strong light coming from your window) so you show more, and that's actually really nice ^^ You underestimate your skill :giggle:

You're welcome! ^^

Maybe it's just because I know where the "trick" is, and I can't help but see it. Anyway, I have to practise photoshop a bit :)

Yes it does happen - same for mine ^^ To avoid that, I try to spend as little time looking at the original photo ;P But for the viewer it's a different story :)
Yes! Practice makes perfect ^^ I'll sure be practicing for as long as I'm alive :)

Oh thank you so much :3

Well - usually I don't get much feedback here on pictures of me, so I figured people here preferred my still lifes rather than pics of people. Now I guess with these last two pictures I uploaded, it's just pictures of me that are mostly ignored not of people as a whole :P Community here is nicer though :) Love reading such comments :blushes:

It's a photo rather than a manip I suppose - I only used bits of another photo to help cover up what she was on :)

Amazing :) I wanted to try something similar, not levitation, but the two photo deal. Also good to know you didn't just jump up and landed on your back for the shot lol ^^

Thank you (: You should! I enjoyed making this :) Except when the initial file got corrupted when my laptop decided to run out of battery just as I was saving it :(

The model is my sister - she wouldn't be very happy with a bruised or broken back as she would have to stop dance :P So yeah :giggle:
