What is levitation photography?
Simply some objects in the photo appear to be levitating/floating in the air. Looks like poor magic, but there is an actual technique to do it.
What do you need to make an object levitate?
- Object(s) you photograph
- Something to hold objects
- Editing software
- Lightbox (optional)
Any camera you have should be enough, you can even use the phone, the most important part is to have a tripod, why?
All photos you take need to be taken without changing the position of your camera, not even by a millimeter. That is why it is so important to have a tripod.
To hold objects you can use many things, I simply used a paper clip :).
Now you take a lot of photos placing objects in different positions (macaroons), my main object cup of coffee (the full one) stays in the same place.
After placing all your photos in photoshop as different layers, you remove parts that you don’t need (video below) thanks to the tripod and your camera being in the same place your photos align perfectly. Even if your background is busier it still easy to match photos and remove parts you don’t need.
