Video games in which we can act as photographers

It is not the first time we talk about the influence cinema or music in the world of video games. As a means capable of uniting different artistic fields, it is also not surprising that some titles also allow us to become photographers and act as such in order to create a Photo Booth Wollongong.

Moreover, some of the snapshots taken in these virtual worlds have nothing to envy those who could perform in reality. Obviously it’s a totally different experience, but still retain certain photographic canons as framing or lighting .

As gameplay, the sandbox seems the most appropriate to become street photographers and explore what we can find. However, we also have other works for different reasons have finished linking the image field. Here are some of them.

Metal Gear Solid

For many objects that we manage to develop in The Phantom Pain is one that has not included: the camera. This did not happen in the third or fourth of Metal Gear Solid , where we could equip the camera as an object and start capturing snapshots of what was interesting to us. In MGS4 we could even do a photo shoot every time we defeated a member of the unit“Beauty and the beast” , who posed as if models are treated.

Far Cry 3

The camera is used for the main character element can mark enemies , mechanical imitate later in The Phantom Pain with binoculars. In PC we can also take pictures and they are stored in a hidden folder, but in the version for consoles seems that these snapshots are not saved anywhere and is only an aesthetic function. A pity.

Pokémon Snap

This is a title of Nintendo 64 that made you feel like a true National Geographic photographer Pokémon world. In the game you play a photojournalist who travels with his camera through a platform. Later,Professor Oak exercises jury and gives us a score according to different factors such as the pose in which we immortalized that Pokémon or quality of our frame.

We could not miss the title sandbox par excellence. Especially is the latest title in the franchise when they have begun to exploit the artistic capabilities of the GTA universe. As proof of this we have pictures of some users who at times can make us doubt whether we have something real or fictitious.Climb the highest mountain in Los Santos and immortalize this moment is almost impossible to avoid, but perhaps prefer to avoid that sunset and take one selfie Trevor after doing who knows what. Both options are valid.

The Last of Us

Naughty Dog added a picture so that not only allowed us to stop the action at any time and capture what appeared, but could also configure aspects such as depth of field and edit the snapshot with filters, grain, vignetting … etc . It is an inherited characteristic of Infamous: Second Son , which already included a similar photo mode. We can get from a photo with a superb black and white to such an junky postcard embarrass the very editor Picnik.

Dead Rising

As if it were a professor of photography, Frank West teaches us what techniques we should use to make a good image and how to use the rule of thirds . All a master class on what to do to capture portraits of zombies.Frank is a reflection of a critique of journalistic sensationalism, which shows taking pictures while the city is overrun by a plague of undead.

Project Zero

In this game of terror we have only a camera as a weapon available , with which we can see those evil spirits that surround us. Thus, through the viewfinder you can be seen enchanted objects or even defend ourselves when we receive the attack of some ghost. Depending on how we have focused our enemy and the frame will make you more or less damage, which is not very comforting when a wandering soul is directed toward the target.

Life Is Strange

Life Is Strange

In this case we get in the skin of a photography student . In fact, the first chapter begins in a high school class where we talk about professionals like Diane Arbus and Robert Frank . Moreover, we even wonder daguerreotypes . The importance of the image is very present in Life Is Strange, and that is something that photographers welcome.
