Trick Photography — INSOMNIA using GIMP software

I’ve been having so much fun with my Trick Photography and Special Effects eBook and videos that I purchased and became an affiliate of the other day!    Here are some of my other posts and photos:  http://www.thechickofalltrades.com/tag/trick-photography/.

I’ve had some time this afternoon on the computer so I grabbed my child, wrestling him away from his video games, and made him sit while I took his picture. (No one was hurt in the making of this photo.)  I did not use any special lighting, just my camera, a dark background, and natural light coming in my living room window.  I downloaded GIMP for free and had to go through a few tutorials on YouTube after I watched the videos on how Evan Sharboneau did it in Photoshop.  There are a few steps I still need to learn about on GIMP, but I’ll spend some time learning in the near future.

As it is, here is my rendition of what Evan has entitled “INSOMNIA”:
