Shoot For The Stars

Uploaded: February 19, 2018 | Entered: March 07, 2018 17:05:01


Levitation photography can either be the appearance of a stable object not supported by visible means combining several images or as in this case, the illusion of an unsupported subject in a single image. I have been wanting to try these perspective images like the ones done on sidewalks for some time now. I tried several ideas this week, & lastly came up with this one of bringing the sidewalk indoors. I used a blue background screen on the floor & glow in the dark stars & a cut-out moon. Lighting was an ocf & several light stands w/ 100 watt cfl's. Getting enough light on her and still look like the night sky was a challenge. I added star twinkles in the background and motion blur in PSE.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
