To get this composition to work I fixed the camera on a tripod and used the self timer to capture myself balanced on a stool. After the stool capture, I removed it and captured the background. The rest was a matter of masking to eliminate the stool from the scene. The shadow was created by filling a duplicate of my body shape with black, applying Gaussian Blur and reducing the Opacity. A fun project to capture and create.
