Well got a bit bored and took this "floating banana" picture.
- First I set up my tripod and then took a picture of the "background" without the banana (I did this because it helped me with editing the toothpicks in the banana later)
- Then propped the banana with toothpicks to the angle I wanted it to be on the plate, and cut smaller pieces and piled them on top of each other with more toothpicks. Giving it the floating effect.
- Then after getting a picture I was happy with I put them into Gimp and edited out the toothpicks, applied some color and made the rest black and white.
Hope this helped if you have more questions or anything feel free to ask!
