Playing with leviatation

In the 2 weeks off in between the end of my first year of Nesop and a summer course I tried experimenting with creating images of leviatation.  In preparation for my summer creative imaging I began to experiment with using photoshop to create the illusion of floating.

The basic idea is to create two plates from which to work from in Photoshop. The first plate is the empty scene to serve as a background. The second plate would be myself in the frame balanced precariously on a stool. Once I had two frames they would be carefully combined and alined in Photoshop. The final step was to carefully mask out the stool and the illusion was complete.

I discovered that while techincally some of the images worked they weren't as interesting to look at. It was in one of my final composites that I came across the image below which was more abstracted and worked better.
