    Hi everyone,

    I have been playing with some special effects lately. Some of you may remember my dog levitating, here are 2 of my nieces (11 and 15 years old) levitating too!
    I'm learning and experimenting these techniques so please be indulgent.
    To make things harder, I tried to combine several effects while levitating, light painting and/or ghost effect. I discovered it's pretty hard to post-process afterwards and to get correct exposures as the light was changing constantly (end of the afternoon and twilight). Except for the 3rd picture, they're all multi-shot photographs

    It was annoying to post-process but was fun to shoot! :)

    What do you think?

    Very imaginative Christian...the third & fourth ones are a bit eerie.

    Thank you!
    It's fun to shoot, but I don't like the post-processing part. I like shooting outside, I don't like spending hours on my computer

    Hi guys!

    For those who are interested, I finally could finish my tutorial about levitation :
    http://ilovehatephoto.com/2014/09/23/floating-in-air-an-introduction-to-levitation-photography/

    It wasn't easy to write it for me as English is not my native langage. This subject was more challenging than the others. Sorry for the phrases if they're not quite understandable, I did my best...

    Hope you guys like it and don't hesitate to leave comments to know what you think of it and/or ask questions :)
