Step-by-step how to create a levitation image

  1. Set up a camera on a tripod, don't bump into it or move it during your shooting. 
  2. Take  a picture of the scene without the subject in it.
  3. Use a stool, ladder, table, etc. to levitate yourself (or someone else) from a surface and take a picture of yourself.
  4. In Photoshop, open the photos. a) Choose the photograph without you in it as the main background b) Bring the image in of you levitating as a layer. d) Line the images up so they match. e) Erase away the stool, ladder, table, etc, to create the illusion of levitation.
  5. Flatten the layers.
  6. Crop the image.
  7. Save the image as a tiff at 300 dpi. to print.
  8. Save the image again as a jpeg at 73-100 dpi to upload on your blog.
