Hi there! I absolutely love this photo! I was just wondering how you did this? Im a photo student and I'm looking to do a photo in this style and I was wondering how you did it and if you had any tips?
CasaBay_Photo PRO
CasaBay_Photo November 11, 2015
Hi! this is image was a lot of fun to do, but it took many hours. My number one tip is to keep track of your layers because you will have many and it makes a huge difference knowing where each layer is. Also, have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish before starting because not knowing can sometimes be the reason you waste hours and hours! Be careful with your colors and don't be afraid of playing with textures!

Great effect...I use an action called Sandstorm sometimes...see my profile where I did a couple... but this one has that one topped. Is the edit all manual? Have you created an action for this effect?
CasaBay_Photo PRO
CasaBay_Photo April 18, 2017
Hi Ken :) Yes, all the edit is manual. There is no action for this effect :( I don't think i would even know where to start if I wanted to create one! I am one of those people that fund photoshop relaxing so I don't mind the 8 hours it sometimes takes to create these images ;)

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken in and old abandoned house in downtown Arequipa, Peru. My sister (who is also the model), her best friend, and I had to fight with some spiders and a couple of creepy pigeons for this spot. The building had been used as a gym a couple of years before us being there and there were all sorts of odd signs everywhere. I had no idea what to expect because until the day of the shoot, I was not able to visit the building and I didn't know what it looked like on the inside. After walking around for a few minutes I fell in love with this wall. The colors and textures are just wonderful and work really well with the red fabric we used.
Time
The image was taken at about 11.30 am. We were inside a dark building and the only source of light was through some small windows. So I wanted to get as much light as possible.
Lighting
I love natural light for my surreal portraiture. I find that when I work with artificial sources of light, the image looks less natural and almost fake. Because I almost never use a flash, I am not afraid of high ISO settings, I actually prefer grain in my images. This particular room was not too bright and the only source of light was this very slim window at the top of a wall. I placed my sister in the corner of the room facing the light. I loved how soft the light was.
Equipment
I used a tripod and my trusted Canon 7D with a 28-135 mm lens. Also, I used a chair to lift her from the floor and create the levitation effect.
Inspiration
I wanted to create something different. I wanted to make something I had never seen before, and that would make people stop and take a second look. I am tired of women's bodies being used as props in photography, I wanted the woman in my image to be more than a body, I wanted to give her power and a magical quality. My sister is my inspiration for this image, because she is strong, confident, and beautiful. I tried to show in my image, what I see in her.
Editing
Yes! 8 hours and more than 50 layers of Photoshop are the secret behind this image. I use the non-destructive method of editing, so this image killed my computer a couple of times because of its size. I used several brushes, textures, and effects. The effect of the dress alone is made up of about 20 layers. I love how Photoshop gives us the tools to show others what is going on in our minds.
In my camera bag
I carry two camera bodies: Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 7D. I also have a 50 mm prime, 70-200 mm, 24-70 mm, and a 10-22 mm. I always have a grey card, a tripod, and a reflector with me.
Feedback
The most important thing for surreal and levitation photography is to have a plan. One has to know in advance the effect you wish accomplish so you can get the necessary shots. It is like a puzzle that can't be put together without all the pieces. Take some time before the shoot to make a list of the images you will need and set up your shoot according to that list. Also, know your equipment. One has to have the ability to adapt to the lighting situations. Pay attention to your white balance, ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings . If you are trying to shoot in automatic settings the image quality, color, and feel of the images won't be consistent. This makes it extremely difficult to create a composite that is believable and looks natural.
