Sturdy tri­pod

The shots we need for this ef­fect need to be in per­fect align­ment, so use a tri­pod through­out. Get down low to em­pha­size the gap be­tween sub­ject and ground.

Sta­ble sup­port

Our sub­ject should be perched atop a sup­port in a floaty pose. We used a fold­able work­bench, but a stool, steplad­der or chair could work just as well.

Back Light­ing

Moody light­ing and the night set­ting boost at­mos­phere. As well as the head­lights, we used two Speed­lights; one be­hind to the right, and another to the left.

Empty space

We also need a shot of the empty scene, sans sub­ject or sup­port. The ex­po­sure and fo­cus point should stay con­sis­tent over both frames.
