    i assure you, I did not use blutack or anything at all... I guess the fluorescent lamp was too strong (notice that the colours of the corner of the phone seemed burnt?) this was a 'lucky' shot

    Hi yanyewkay,

    Thanks but like I mentioned before, this was a 'lucky' shot.

    Tried again but did not achieve the same effect... must try it again when I have the time. Attached below is a photo of the simple setup.

    A correction to my earlier post of the rough sketch for the setup, the camera should be in horizontal position and not held vertical as I have drawn.

    The fluorescent light could be place a little higher. Try to see if this works. The floating effect is actually a reflection from fluorescent.
