  4. 4. The photograph demonstrates a side view interpretation of a Chuck-Close style portrait. Using a white screen allowed for a more greater depth of field along with the artificial light shown on the face in order to show more visual details.

I increased the levels of vibrancy and brightness on the photograph to make facial details more visible.
