Behind the shot #3: Levitation

June 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

This is my little sister Stefanie. She came to visit for the weekend and I'd been itching to try out a levitation shot after reading countless how-to's online. We shot this in my living room, I cleared a lot of crap out of the way and sat her on a little stool and placed a little box under her feet. I then reshot the same image with Stefanie, the stool and the box shifted out of the way. The image went straight into photoshops to be comped together. This is how the 2 started out looking...

I shot a couple of stops under as the highlights were very blown out due to the snow outside but in the end I decided to comp in a much nicer view!

The technical bits:

Canon 6D / Canon 40mm 2.8 lens f2.8 1/250sec ISO-800 / edited in ACR with VSCO pack 05 Agfa Vista 800-- /
