The Complete Levitation Tutorial | With @Christopher.james

By December 7, 2017 No Comments

Christopher James is a Hawaii based photographer who made a name for himself by creating narrative images containing (what appears to be) the act of levitation.

If you’ve spent time viewing photography on Instagram you have likely come across an image using this mesmerizing technique. The first time I saw one I desperately wanted to make one of my own. But with minimal photoshop skills (at the time) assumed it was out of reach.

Turns out with the correct steps in place and some simple planning done ahead of time, this photography technique is easily achieved.  Christopher has mastered the craft of levitation and created a course making this technique simple to understand and replicate.
