Levitation photography is unique!  We are attracted to levitation photos because there's something just not right about the image.  Levitation photography looks difficult, however it really is not and with a little planning it can be done by anyone.  Take a look at my images and let me know what you think.

Ever since I saw Natsumi Hayashi's Levitation photography I was inspired to try it.   The above photo is an example of how Natsumi did her style of photography.

The above pictures are examples of how the shot is set up.  Basically you take your camera, put it on a tripod, set your exposure manually and compose your shot.  Take one of the model (in this case Marina) and then remove everything and take the same shot again.

In the above photo, I wanted the dress to look like it was falling so we composed the image so that it looked more realistic.
