Flying Kiwi

Another hot weekend in Nicosia…what can a man do other than stay home, blast the A/C and levitate some fruit! Continuing on my quest to enhance my Photoshop skills, I took on this fairly trivial project of making pieces of fruit seem like they are floating in mid air. All it really takes is a tripod and a victim – in this case some pieces of sliced kiwi.

As a first try, I think it came out quite well. I do want to give this another round, only next time make the set up a bit more elaborate with multiple pieces of fruit being tossed up in the air. Given that we are still half way through the summer, I am pretty sure the opportunity will arise fairly soon….
