While working on a recent post (How can parts of Canada be ‘missing’ gravity?) i discovered a type of photography i never knew existed called Levitation Photography.
There are two types of levitation photography. The first kind uses Adobe Photoshop or some other graphics manipulation program to fake the effects we see. Boring.
The second kind of levitation photography is what i’m presenting to you here.
These photographs of levitations are NOT digitally manipulated in any way. These photographs were done by Natsumi Hayashi, a photographer living in Tokyo, Japan. What you see is what Natsumi actually captured with her camera – no digital manipulation.
But how does she do it? (see additional information below the slideshow)
I found these photos absolutely fascinating and i thought you would too. Take a look and enjoy. :)
A photographer not associated with Natsumi Hayashi tries to duplicate her work in a YouTube video located here.
