Levitation Photo Tips (Part 2)

5. Clothes

The type of clothing worn by the model certainly has a big influence on the results of the photo. It is recommended to use a flowing type of fabric that wrinkles easily so that you can see the model's movement and it looks more real. Don't have too many patterns and motifs so that the focus is on the subject.

2. Body language

It is quite difficult to make the model look like it is floating naturally and not look like it is lifting its body. Some tips you can try:

  • Make the atmosphere more relaxed so that the model is not stressed. Occasionally make jokes so that the model laughs which can make the neck and shoulders more relaxed.
  • Instruct the model that her hands should not be clenched into fists or fully open. Make it as relaxed as possible, imagine like you are floating. Relax your fingers so they are slightly open and half clawed.
  • The position of the toes is pointed so that the feet look pointier because when you are floating the feet cannot possibly look flat.

3. Take 2 photos

Actually, just 2 shots are not enough, but you can take several photos until there are 2 images that you feel are good enough to be processed in an editing program. You can take a photo first without the model, then another one with the model doing levitation. But please note that the two pictures taken must be the same in terms of angle, lighting, frame and camera settings. You can use the help of a tripod so you can get the same photo.

4. Processing images

The 2 images that you have obtained are then processed in Photoshop and delete the objects that the model uses for support. It's not difficult, it just takes practice to get used to it.
