iPhone Photos of People Floating in Mid-Air

A Bologna, Italy-based artist Simone Bramante helps companies come up with unique social media strategy. He’s not just an artist but a jack-of-all-trades, working as a commercial photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer. However, in his spare time, he lays his Canon 6D and L-series lenses and picks up his trusty iPhone and captures himself as well as others floating in mid-air.

Bramante admits he is using photo editing apps to help him create these magical illusions, including Snapseed, Photoshop, FIlterstorm, VSCO and Afterlight, to name some. He started posting his photos on Instagram account brahmino about three years ago and now over 436,000 people follow him.

Flying Henry by Rachel Hulin

This photo project of former blogger and photo editor Rachel Hulin “Flying Henry” shows her baby Henry floating in landscapes. Hulin started this series because she was bored. A new mom who’d recently relocated from Brooklyn to Providence, Rhode Island, she says, “I was looking for a project to sink my teeth into while I was home with Henry when he was so little. I was trying figure out motherhood and the whole thing seemed so weird to me.”

Although Hulin wouldn;t go into specifics on how she achieved such pictures, she swears she never throw Henry in the air. “And I never move him into a place in the frame that he wasn’t in to begin with. I like Henry to fly the way he feels like it, I never pose him in a specific way,” she said.

Humans can fly. Fish can fly. Who said jellyfish can’t fly?

Most of us doesn’t like jellyfish. They’re slimy, icky and they sting. And what if you heard that they can also fly? You’d probably never go out into the beach again. Russian photographer Alexander Semenov might have photographed a few jellyfish doing that.

Jellyfish are actually beautiful creatures. Dangerous but beautiful. They hover in the water slowly waving their dome and spreading their tentacles. No wonder Semenov took a fancy in them. He is a zoologist who specializes in the study of invertebrates.

And if you’re still worried about them jellyfish flying, don’t be. Don’t worry, they still haven’t learned to fly yet. Semenov’s ‘flying’ jellyfish photographs were actually a result of an underwater shot taken at an upward angle.

Who are we, and where do we come from? These are two primary questions that faces humanity today and which German photographer Michael Najjar hopes to understand by flying high above the earth. He is one of the certified civilian astronauts on board the Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo which scheduled to launch in 2014. Najjar wishes to be the first artist in space.

The above photo show liquid gravity taken on training session in December 2012 at the Gargarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia. Najar said, “The liquid gravity explores linkages between space, gravity and the human body. A cosmonaut levitates above the ground in an environment what seems to be an industrial ambiance. The presence of the globe of the earth through a port hole dislocates the cosmonaut’s environment and puts into question the relationship between real world and fabricated reality.”

Najjar will undergo intensive cosmonaut training in Russia including jet fighter flights in the stratosphere, Zero G, centrifuge training and many more. The flight shall become a multimedia performance piece.
