I shot this image using my iPhone using the camera app. The camera was set to 4K. I wanted to take a portrait as in my final piece I hope to take photos of people doing their daily activities, as well as some posed shots, to show how people who have undergone medical treatment go about their daily tasks.
I chose this image as I liked that it looked natural, and very personal as it’s inside someones house. I also liked the fact he was making tea, as it’s a very mundane activity that a lot of people do daily, and I want to replicate this with some of my interviews as they are not as able and so may do things like this differently.
I put the photo through Photoshop on my computer. I wanted to make it brighter and less dull, as out kitchen is quite dark against the bright window. I also cropped the image slightly, to give him a little less headroom and move the attention towards the middle of the photo.
I did not have many issues fixing the image, there wasn’t anything I wanted to cut out and I was happy with how the colours looked after editing.
