The little-known world of In-Game Photography
You see that piece of art up there? That’s from Red Orchestra 2. But how? Ask Iain Andrews. The guy’s tumblr page is chock full of gorgeous ‘postcards’, as he calls them. Beautiful shots taken in-game from scenes and backgrounds that most gamers might overlook entirely, in an effort to progress in the game. With this kind of response to gaming, all those who work on the concept art for these games must surely beam at the thought that someone stopped to ‘smell the roses’. And Iain isn’t alone.
There’s a whole world of In-Game Photography still growing, developing, and innovating the field of Photography itself. With the rise of much more intense focus on the visual and graphical aspect of video games, it almost seems laughably obvious that someone would discover the possibility, but folks doing this have a very keen eye and tons of skill that is definitely involved.
Honestly, this is only a tidbit of what has to be said for In-Game Photography. But if you’re interested and have some time to spare, hit up the link for a bigger look and dive into this awesome foray into a new direction.
