In this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge, we were asked to post a photo that is ‘unusual’ in some way, whether it be through technique, by subject, or just different to something you would usually do.
Oddly enough, last week’s challenge ‘collage’, would have fitted the bill perfectly for me, it’s not something I had ever done before. Similarily, I’ve never tried before to superimpose one photo on another using layers, so for my attempt at an unusual technique, I have posted three such images. These ‘unusual’ portraits were all created using the open source software, ‘Gimp’, and it’s very capable layer blending modes. I must stress, none of the original photos were taken by me!
