Defy Gravity-- Day Two

before and after levitation editing

Photo Shoot Tips

- Consider Drapery including, hair,clothes,limbs. The goal is to make your subject appear to be weightless. 
- Make sure that you don't have harsh shadows on your subject- Avoid this to be sure your subject looks like they fit the environment you place them in. If you have harsh shadows it will be clear your subject had a diffident light source than your environment.
-Consider your shooting angle...
-You need photos of your environment WITHOUT the subject as well!

Overall Goal for the "Defy Gravity" Project

-I will photography a figure to seem weightless and manipulate that image in Photoshop to display the illusion of levitation.
-I will create a photograph that conveys engaging space and environment.
-I will consider props and costume.

Learning Targets for Today
-Create a purposeful exploration post for your Defy Gravity project
-Begin a Practice levitation image-- Post on your blog by the end of the day Tomorrow

Links for today

Learning Targets for Today
- I can practice isolating objects in Photoshop and editing them to appear weightless.
