I shot these images on my iPhone camera, as it provides a simple and straightforward ‘point to shoot’ type of photography.
The rucksack within the composition is there to symbolise a dog, as the images that I’d like to capture involve people interacting with dogs.
The images were shot without any effects or presets, I used the iPhone’s built in AE/AF lock to control and lock the contrast and brightness.
I imported the images into my Macbook, where I used Apple’s photos app to explore the many different options in lighting, definition, colour and more.
I increased the saturation, contrast and shadows, while decreasing the brilliance and highlights. This creates a more structured and 3-dimensional image, boosting the dark aspects while reducing whitewashed brightness.
The image’s structure and definition were already very pronounced, therefore I did not feel the need to alter any of the settings concerning definition.
