I just took an online tutorial based on the process of shooting and editing photos with the intent of creating more artistic pieces. One of the standard composite photos is a "levitation." To practice, I thought I'd take a stab at this common composite. The below is my first attempt. I learned a ton as I worked through the edit. There are a ton of things I'd do differently to improve this, but I thought I'd share anyway. See below.
I started off with a main shot of the model (my wife), leaning back. This would serve as the main shot upon which I build the rest. I took several photos of the different pieces I needed (legs, hair, hips, etc.). I also used a couple stock photos to add to the drama and art of the shot.
It's actually a ton of fun if you like to tinker in photoshop. I'm already thinking of what I want to do next. Any ideas?
