levitation take I

Okey, so I have tried "levitation" photography for the first time...but I have to go a few times to make it right, I think! Great fun, but a test in patience and perception.
Here are the different shots used to combine the photo "detached".

Here is the stage, where the camera is mounted on a tripod

The umbrella was captured by itself

The model, balancing on one/two stools

I needed a flick of a dress to cover some stool

The final image, after a few adjustment layers, and retouch, as well as a texture layer
