Insomnia by *JOOPninja shows a struggle that for many is daily (or maybe I should say nightly?) and frustrating!

I had to do a self portrait for one of my classes in the HND Photography class I just began. I am loving it!
We had to show some element of ourselves and being an insomniac I thought this was fitting...

While it is pretty much exactly what I had in my head when I thought it up... I don't like it =S I dunno why though... The lighting maybe?

What do yous think?

Welcome to If it weren't for sleep deprivation, I don't think I'd bother too much with DA. I feel your struggle.
Did you use a multiple exposure, or a delay/strobe to achieve this effect? Either way very cool shot!

Haha! Well I am glad you stayed awake to find my photograph.

Its s 10 sec, single exposure in a black room using a torch (jammed into my sofa) for the ghostly light. :katana:

That's definitely what insomnia looks like. I've had a major case of it the last couple of months. Seeing as how it came on when I stopped exercising regularly, I'd say that's the cause. Gotta work out till you're sweating and feeling the burn at least twice a week if you want good sleep.

Too true! The only days I sleep are the non-stop ones! :katana:

Hey David, This is really interesting, if you visit my gallery you'll understand why I appreciate your image so much.

Thanks! I had a look and see you like dark imagery. A few of your paintings were fantastic... Think you will like my next shoot ;)

I think the light's been caught really well. Your long exposure means you get that ghostly effect, it really fits the whole theme thing; light keeps everyone awake, you're bothered by it, its still not why you're awake though. Nice =)

I feel this way every damn time the sun goes down. :+favlove: bloody brilliant.
