"Hey my name is Dani Diamond, a fashion/commercial photographer based out of NYC. Ever since I started photography my dream was to take levitation shots. I’ve been looking for the right setting, the right subject and dress for quite a while. A few days ago I got together with a bunch of photographers and models and we did a shootout. The location was an old mansion from the late 1800’s and when I walked up to the attic I knew I wanted to take my long waiting dream shot.
I presented the idea to one of the models and she was down.
There’s a softbox on camera left. I took 2 compositions – In the first there was a chair under her foot and a string holding her skirt. In the second the room was empty. I combined the 2 with Photoshop and masked out the chair." -Dani Diamond
