Trick photography and levitation photos aren’t a new phenomenon. Amateur and professional photographers have been creating trick photos since the beginning of photography itself. Some have made fortunes creating these photos. Not long ago trick photography was only discussed in photography clubs and forums and considered a fun way for hobbyists to master photography.
The ease of sharing photos online
A major reason why the sudden popularity of levitation and trick photography is due to the influence of social media. It is easier than ever before in human history to take a photo with a camera and share it with thousands or even millions of people around the world. We can now share our photos through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and a whole range of social-enabled websites and have it reach people we don’t even know.
We love to spread great photography and ideas
Like most people, we are drawn to great ideas and photographs and can’t resist the temptation to share it with our friends and family. They repeat the process with their friends and family and so on. The result are ideas and photos that get spread like a viral hit.
Levitation photography created by ordinary people jumping in front of a camera got a huge boost in popularity when Natsumi Hayashi started taking beautiful shots of herself levitating and posting it in her blog. Her pictures captured the imagination of many people and so now we have photography clubs dedicated to levitation photos across the world.
