Photo Spotlight Levitation Photography Behind the scenes
February 27, 2014 Portfolio
Here is the first look at this shots behind the scenes pics. Multiple photos were combined to get the underside of the shoes in the reflections to get a true reflection image.
Levitation shot over a lake with levitation reflection. This was my first levitation over water, we had two cameras setup for backup, the other camera had a better shot of the reflection (which was why we did it over water) but this angle was better with the clouds and mountain and rocks. Next time, I would switch it to portrait mode instead of landscape so I could get a full view of the reflection. (Since the reflection in the photo is completely real.)
You must also get a shot without the ladders without moving the tripod/camera so you can mask out the ladders correctly.
Two 580ex II's on left ground with white shoot through umbrella to help a little with filling the shadow. Triggered with RadioPopper JrX. Take with a 5D Mark II with 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.
