Teach me how to float!

Teach me how to float!

I took the whole night to stage this shot for Weekly Photo Challenge: Weight(less). No Photoshop.

    Amazing work, Jeremy. This shot is stunning from so many angles: so life-like, the reflections, earthly coloured tones. How…did Buzz fly? I wonder if the same can be done to my Mr Wobbles or if he is just too heavy a fatty 😀

      Actually to make him fly is the easy part, I just had to hang him with a very thin thread. The difficult part was to make the thread “invisible”, by not focusing on it and intentionally over-exposing so that it could blend with the background. And don’t bother to spot the thread with your hawk eyes, because I have made sure it is flawless, haha. Mr Wobbles will be too heavy, but I guess a fishing line may hold his weight and do the same trick 🙂

        You really are good with setting up your shots. Blowing up the photo full size, I’m guessing the thread is hung right at the back of Buzz’s neck, just a bit behind the green dot…

        Now you’ve got Mr Wobbles all excited. Oh dear 😀

      Thanks, Tina! I hung him on a thin thread, then played with camera settings so that the thread appeared invisible. But the key is to bend his legs and use a reflective surface (my dining table) so that it is more convincing that his feet are not touching the ground. I figured out after multiple failed attempts 🙂
