Awesome Levitation Photos

Many says floating in the air, or so called levitation is impossible. Well, in fact everything is possible, all you need to do is believe yourself, seriously, believe that you can achieve it! And uh, believe that the Photoshop can help you achieve it. Okay, I'm talking about achieving levitation with the help of cheat tool like Photoshop.

A quick shot with some levitation and flying hair to add interest. (Image Source: Somewhere Lovely)

Card Game. My family has been asking about my levitation pictures and wanted to be in one/have a levitating picture of their own. We were playing cards and this idea was born. I wanted to focus on each person to get their expressions how I liked them, so I shot each person individually and composite them together. (Image Source: Erich Leeth)
