Was like, when one photographed later (4,5)


I believe the answer is:

took after

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'was like' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'one photographed later' is the wordplay.
'one photographed' becomes 'took' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'later' becomes 'after' (I've seen this in another clue).
'took'+'after'='TOOK AFTER'

'when' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for took after that I've seen is " Resembled".)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
