The challenge for this week was Levitation. I almost skipped this week. I didn’t think that there was any chance that I could capture a floating object with my iPhone. But I watched some tutorial videos and decided to give it a try.
I wanted my subject to be simple. So I peeled a banana and included the peel in the photo. I had some clear nylon thread used for jewelry making and I thread that through the cupboard handles above the stove. I tied each end around the banana and made it float. Then I used the spot healing brush in my photo editing software (PhotoScape X-cheap version of Photoshop and Lightroom) and removed the clear string. I didn’t do much else for editing, just upped the contrast, brightness and sharpened it a bit. I’m proud of my efforts and it was fun.
For those of you wondering about the banana I used it in a chia seed banana breakfast pudding. I made one batch and put into 4 serving size jars to eat for breakfasts this week. If I like the pudding I’ll post the recipe.
