assignment 8:  levitation photography

Target: Approach photography as a creative and artistic outlet. Have some fun creating dream like "levitation" images.  


Directions:  Work with a partner or tripod and timer and remote to set up the scene, any props necessary, lighting etc. to shoot a levitation photo.  This can be done though fast shutter speed and well considered jumping poses or through using a shot with props to "levitate" your subject and a second shot of the background, that can then be combined to eliminate the props.  



  • the pose/posture of the body, drape of clothes and hair etc. are essential for the levitation effect

  • decide the mood/emotion you intend to portray​

  • the location will impact the mood

  • consider changing the tones and colors in photoshop

  • what do you want to say?
