I'm just sitting outside at nigt on a wooden 2x4 spread across 2 chairs. I hit up my brother to spray some smoke from my smoke machine below me, and then at level with where I was sitting while the camera was on timer. It took a few trys before he gave up and lost interest in helping me. :-p

For the lighting I just used a simple 3 point lighing system with a few lamps I stole from around the house.

Very interesting concept and well done. I'm dying to know why there isn't a pillowcase. Very well done. Should place high.

Fine concept. I would have chosen white pants for the model and scrapped the pillow, or at least put a pillow case upon it. Nice use of smoke, fog.

This is imaginative and I like it a lot. Don't know where you were, but if you could have changed into something white and draping to take that image, it would have been an automatic 10. As it is, the dreamy mode is somewhat chastened by the plaid pants.

AWESOME concept. I love it
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gread lighting and the clouds are really well done. Perhaps a little too much motion in the 'clouds' at the top.

Cool image...I'm really appreciating these few images that have made an effort to be creative. I like the simplicity of this picture, the smoke/fog photographed beautifully. The somewhat worrysome look on the models face is very effective. The only problem I can see people picking on is in the lower right hand side, an angular looking shadow...I can't tell what it is, I don't know if it's there on purpose...but I have made it into a obscured tower/antenna of some sort, he is sitting on a cloud after all. : }

Niiiice.
Pretty reminds me much of the most of my dreams. But I usually look down. LOL
I think not crossing legs would make it look more like it's in the air though. "8"
