Aside from "long exposure" ect. How was this picture created. Did they use a stool and then remove it, or photoshop or what?

Floating Photo

I'd guess a double exposure and some photoshop. Great shot though!

04/20/2008 08:32:56 PM · #3
Could you do this with just one shot. Long exposure and a chair maybe?
04/20/2008 08:42:01 PM · #4
Amazing photograph, I do love to do that kind of photographs.
Can any one teach me how to do that?

Chroma Key, or what you may know as green screen, or blue screen, or red screen.

You can see clone marks in the space below her dress... also you can see a bit of "healing flare" (dont know the technical term) but look at the funnel shaped dark bit coming from the bottom left of her dress possibly her foot.. that is typical of using the healing brush or patch tool too close to a hard contrast edge...

So i am guessing a cloned out chair and a bit of masking. I would have probably taken two shots, one with the girls stood on the chair/stool and one with the same lighting, camera position and exposure without anything there, and then just mask the "space" in from the empty shot and make her slightly invisible...

She was standing on a box placed under the dress to make her look taller, then a "shadow" was painted on the ground in front of her

Probably way off

Double exposures CAN be achieved with one shot, just look at the majority of work in ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' graphicfunk's portfolio.

My vote is for double exposure, given the slight transparency of her face. IMO, there is also some obvious photoshopping where a stool would be.
04/20/2008 09:12:35 PM · #10
Just a thought, she might not be floating at all, but rather standing on the floor with the light from the front, no shadow would be cast, and what you believe to be the shadow from her may be a shadow from something else or even not a shadow at all. Very nice shot, makes me a little dizzy looking at it. However I do see the photoshopping below her. Now the challenge to everyone is to shoot the same sort of image, without the use of photoshop! GO!

She held her breath until she floated off the floor.

I would like to try something like this, but I don't have the gear. I have a D50, so no double exposure for me.

This cannot be a double exposure in the traditional in camera sense or the background would show clearly through the black dress. In fact, you'd hardly see the black dress. Given the transparency I'd guess two shots were composited together and some bad photoshopping was done around her feet.

As the wise old Jedi master Yoda once said: "Always with you it cannot be done.."

The d50 has a bulb feature and you have a lens cap, or paper... Much can be achieved with your camera sir. :)

You'd be surprised what can be accomplished within a single frame (and the last two were done with a point and shoot).

shadow looks like spray paint and she is standing on a canvas my guess
04/21/2008 02:00:14 AM · #19
I was hoping that it was more cool than just photoshop. I can photoshop things all day, but I was hoping for a purely photographic solution.

Jason,

Read how ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' graphicfunk shot these...

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/300/120/137229.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/300/120/137229.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/361/120/207619.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/361/120/207619.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/295/120/132369.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/295/120/132369.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And one of my own...

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/679/120/524260.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/679/120/524260.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It is a lot easier than you think to accomplish and you don't need a bunch of fancy equipment to achieve great results.
04/21/2008 12:51:04 PM · #21
Is that possible by my Canon PoweShot A610?
04/21/2008 07:10:29 PM · #22
I can't double expose. I can only shoot a long shutter and manipulate the light that way. I am not sure if I could get the same results. I am going to try. I have a shoot lined up for the summer where I am going to work on an idea that I have.
04/21/2008 07:30:18 PM · #23
On a digital you shoot 'double exposure' by using a black card or a slot card which mimics the closing of the shutter. Here are some examples I have done with this technique. It's actually quite fun to see what you can get, although it takes dedication:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/457/120/300412.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/457/120/300412.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/445/120/290271.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/445/120/290271.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/514/120/354218.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/514/120/354218.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/537/120/378685.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/537/120/378685.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/392/120/244154.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/392/120/244154.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Man, looks like it's been a little while since I've tried one. May have to do it again here soon.

Jason, that's what we've all been saying: do a long exposure and cover the lens.

If it's like my Canon A620, the longest you get is 15s, so you have to move fast. But that's how I did this on my other point and shoot:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/662/120/495497.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/662/120/495497.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Here's a lengthy writeup on how I did it.
