I cant wrap my head around this shot.

Hey everyone, I've been trying to figure out how this shot was done. The lighting, the levitation of the girl, it's sublime. Please shed some light on this for me and others. Thank you so much.

Hm, could be in the original shot the modell stood on her feet and they masked her out of the background, rotated the photo or the modell was lying on a chair or something and they masked that out, anyhow she wasn't floating :-)

Wow, do you think she was standing up? I hadn't even thought of that.

rotating the picture wouldn't work lighting wise.

I made something similar

put your camera on a tripod
take a picture of the group of girls in the back

take another picture of the foreground girl (she must be reclining on something)

mask out the foreground girl and add her to the first picture

voila!
