A fun idea to try and see if you can do it
Many people have long held an interest in the unknown, the unexplained and the extraordinary. We have fascination with the things the mind cannot explain. Many of us long to fly, to be able to do supernatural things and long to levitate. Today I am going to show you how to levitate - at least in photographic form.

Go on - squint at it, it looks real enough for a kid's efforts, have a go yourself and see if you can do even better.

Firstly you will need some water and a sponge.

Take the sponge filled with water and dab it gently in a roundish circle on the ground.

Have your photograph subject stand a short distance away from this puddle/ damp patch.

Through the camera lens and see how it looks, does it look like a shadow underneath them?

You may need to move them around a little or move yourself to different angles to get the best photograph.

You may need to expand your moist circle or create a slightly different shape with it to match the shadow of the person standing.

If it is too wet, you will need to let it dry a little bit.

Once you a happy with your image, snap away and prepare to delight your friends with your levitating experiences.
