Really nice. She is not really floating isn't she? Well tell us something how this image was created unless you want to keep it a secret.

Actually, a magician don't reveal his secret :) There many ways to do a levitation. Be creative an try. You will find quickly a way to do it.

+1 would love to know how you did this! Led her sideways then comp in? Amazing colour work! Judging by shutter speed, running and jumping, then catching her on the decent for the lifted skirt and then pasted in?

As I replied to Jaydie, There at least more than 6 differents ways to do a levitation. In camera (without any special effect) or in post production. For my part. I'm a big fan of getting it in camera. That's what make it appear "real". Just saying that. Try to find out by yourself. First You will be proud to succeed. And second, by learning yourself. You will be able to adapt your environment :)

One way of doing this withouth post processing is, a sturdy custom material was used to support the model from the butt to her back was hidden by her skirt from sight. Old trick used by the famouse levitation man from india and now by street performers.

Clever comment Jaydie. Maybe one of this method. Who know !

I guess I've always felt secure enough in myself to share my knowledge, I like to enable people to express themselves if I can, but I understand completely if the whole mystery thing is your comfort / style. Regardless, wonderful picture, great job! Amazing job even!

Honestly I've got no problem for share what I do about technical part. But when it comes to Levitation and fly. I wish could keep the (no secret) method i found over the years, for me. Because it mean a lot of experiment. Thank you for the work ! Really glad you like btw.
