Levitation Photography

During the past years levitation photography became quite popular. On Internet we can see some pretty good exemples and always more photographers are using this technique, even in fashion photography.

While seeing this phenomen rising, I have asked myself, who is the inventor (I even googled it! ;-P)…probably nobody, but I can say that one of the first very successful exemple comes from Tokyo, by the photographer Natsumi Hayashi. You can visit her blog yowayowacamera.com, where she explains that yowayowa is a Japanese term meaning “weak” or “feeble.”
Since I’m yowayowa, it’s really heavy to carry SLR cameras around. 🙂 I think this last one is very funny, as her photographs, where she is able to put a sort of fairy and soft athmosphere.


Even DigitalRev.com had some (funny) tries with Leviatan Photography.

I have never tried to do such pictures, but after seeing so many good exemples around, I really would like to give it a try! And you?

What do you need?

– A camera
– A tripod (or a second photographer)
A lot of inspiration
– Eventually some post-processing:

I’ll try and post something here and…I really would like to see YOUR levitation photographies! You can post a link under comments. 😀
