Mental Health Photography – Mock Shoot

Mental Health Photography – Mock Shoot

As part as my Photography A2 Module after researching into different techniques and colour schemes to show Mental Health and make the message more clearer, I choose for my Mock Shoot to focus on creating Double Exposure in Photoshop and not actually doing it through an in-camera technique.

To achieve this I worked with different colour gels and placed them on top of each other on Photoshop with adjusting the Blending Options.

I felt very Inspired by these pieces and feel they are very thought provoking and stimulating.

For my Final Piece, I plan to take the same style of Images with more colour gels to show different feelings through different colours and plan to use the same technique.

Below shows the outcome of my Mock Piece:

Technical Shoot Double Exposure – Mental Health

Technical Shoot Double Exposure – Mental Health

As part of my A2 Module and looking into new techniques to show Mental Health I decided to look further into Double Exposure and playing around with different colours.

My inspiration behind this shoot was using colours to show the idea of negative feelings which is the reason behind the red.

I also felt I wanted to show distortion some way which Is why I focused on Double Exposure Photography, I felt like some of these images especially the first one below captures these feelings and emotions as to how people may feel.

Red Filter Shoot – Mental Health

Red Filter Shoot – Mental Health

As part of my A2 Module, I decided to try new techniques that would show the idea of Mental Health, one of the first I tried was using Filters.

I found that using filters, It made the photograph pop out more and looked stimulating alone without any editing. I have edited these briefly by enhancing colours as I felt these showed danger and bolder.
