    Hi everyone,

    One thing I'd like to learn is levitation photography. There are some awesome photographers who make incredible and very artistic pictures. So I wanted to try that by myself and learn this technique. As I had nobody available to help me do it or to play the model, I asked my dog HA HA
    There's nothing artistic in these pictures, it's just a very first try, testing and learning. I think it's quite funny.
    I wouldn't recommend doing this with an animal for the first try. It's quite complicated as he was struggling (he hates being held on his back), the fur is a lot of hassle to start with while post-processing and in this type of light conditions, as I had to hold my dog myself, my own shadow changed the light on my dog so it doesn't appear very natural here. I would recommend to do it with objects or people, that's way easier! Anyway, it was a first try and it was worth it. I now have very original portraits of my dog :p
    So I'm going to push and go in-depth of this photography field. I think it's a lot of fun, to do and to watch.

    PS: The rock is also levitating :)
