For our idea we also wanted to add a corresponding photograph of the participant who had taken part in our interactive survey in order to achieve and portray the range of characters and identities in addition to show what they value.
Firstly, we experimented with the close up portrait. Although the identity of the figure is presented, we are not able to see the full persona or character. We then experimented with zooming out of the tight portrait with the addition of the background. The background suggests the characters personal background (slightly) however the blurry scenery seemed chaotic and disturbing because the image is too compact. Afterwards, we experimented with photographing the full figure. The way the full figure shot reflects the persona's social background by considering features such as the clothing was very advantageous for our idea.
