Levitation photography is a great photography trick. The best thing about levitation photography is that it all looks so real.
This is not exactly a photography trick but instead more of a Photoshop trick.
Basically you take two different pictures one with the subject and one of just the background. The camera will be secured on a tripod so that the scene and the angle of view do not change.
In this shot Yasmine is actually standing on a chair, which we had covered with black cloth to make our job easier in post production. The same shot of the empty scene given below is also used for this picture.
Shot of the scene without the subject, as the camera was on a tripod we need not worry about the angle of view and relative subject placement and all.
Once you have the two shots which are essential, it is time to open them up in Photoshop, Put both of the images into the same document (different layers) by dragging and dropping or copying and pasting them in.
We had the image with the subject on the top layer and the one without the subject as the bottom layer.
Now select the top layer and then erase the stool by using an eraser tool or by using a layer mask. Ta-da! The chair is gone, and it looks like your subject is floating in mid-air.
