{Self-Portrait Project} Falling

exposure: 1/160sec f/stop: 8 iso: 100

Hi everyone! I'm going for something different in this week's self-portrait and after looking at some inspirational images and sites, I came up with this photo of me falling on my bed. These sort of photos are called levitation photography and they're pretty fun to do and set up. Don't be surprised if I do more photos like this in the future.

I took this photo with five shots merged together in photoshop. The first was just the background. The second was of me on a chair lying down on top. The third and fourth was of my two pillows and the fifth shot was a shot of a random running shoe. The camera was set up on a tripod with a remote cable to trigger and set on a two second delay. I was using an off camera flash with an orange gel attached sitting on one of my stands. 

Gear used:
- Sony a350 with Carl Zeiss 24-70mm 2.8 lens attached
- one flash with orange gel (HVL-F58AM)
- remote cable
- light stand with Manfrotto 026
- tripod
