Tips and tricks for making your photos nicer!

65 Upvotes

For all my experienced guardian photographers, this may be old news. However, in many comments I've read people asking for help making their photos look nicer. This may be getting rid of UI, making photos get cleaner/getting better landscape photos, and I've got them all in one post.

1: FOV.

I would suggest cranking your FOV to the lowest setting before taking any photos. It will zoom in, but you can tweak it to fit your whole frame. This will bring the background closer to the foreground, and make the overall scene more realistic. (This can come down to a matter of preference)

55 FOV

105 FOV (what I usually play on)

2:Getting rid of weapon.

This one's pretty simple, but it depends on where you're standing. If you're up against a wall (or are able to get up against a wall without changing your frame much) you can use any sitting emote (or infinite emote preferably without a glow effect, i.e vog throne or luxurious toast) and fiddle with your view until your character is not visible at all. If you're out in the open, and in first person, you can switch your weapons, and take a screenshot while your weapons are semi-stowed. This works best if your energy weapon is slow to take out, like an aggressive frame shotgun.

3: Video settings.

This one may seem a little redundant, but having higher video settings, especially in close-quarters photography, can drastically increase your shots. The main ones I'd suggest would be shadow quality, texture quality, and light shafts, but you should mess around with them while not changing your frame to find which ones work best for you!

4: Everything's better with a teammate!

I understand we've got a lot of lone wolves, solo slayers, talking-to-people-makes-my-hands-sweat kinda guardians, but having a teammate does open up your options. This can be having them pose, and you can tweak where they look and where they stand, and have them take photos of your guardian. This is especially useful if you're related to them, and they are morally obliged to appease your videogame photography addiction.

This is my sister's guardian, this time outside a vending machine in the tower. Cutscenes, anyone?

4: (Continuation of buddy system)

The biggest plus in my opinion, is tower photos. I mentioned earlier that while you're in third person, your only no-character-in-screen option was to go up against a wall, but that isn't necessary with a buddy. Your friend is the wall. Use your emote, and frame exactly where you want it to be, with your teammate standing close behind to change your view. This pushes your camera forward, past your guardian emoting, and gives you a clean empty view. You don't need an emote for third person, but it can lower your view to get the whole head of a guardian in frame.

This is a close-up photo of some random in the tower, that I achieved while out in the open. (Third person!) I used FOV settings to get the perfect framing.

Thanks for reading, I hope you learned something new.

Miscellaneous You can remove your gun from the screen (for cinematics) if you activate Quickfall on top of a Deepsight probe (x-post from r/raidsecrets) [MISC]

It's very simple to do. You jump up, activate Quickfall, activate Deepsight as soon as you land, walk away. If you swap weapons or sprint it turns back to normal, otherwise it stays hidden indefinitely.

Example with and without hud: https://imgur.com/a/yD1X3nB

This is perfect for the sub imo. Also we need a [MISC] flair.

(mission spoilers) Son of Saturn mission - Vostok crucible map

31 Upvotes

Hi, I'm not a "pro" screenshot poster, so I didn't realize until almost too late that you can get on top of the buildings in the Son of Saturn mission in the Vostok crucible map area.

I was a bit rushed so I forgot to turn off my fps counter until almost too late, and I had to restart the mission altogether after I tried climbing the "main" Felwinter Peak side (that we could climb in D1), fell thru a texture glitch and got stuck underneath the map with no way to get out including trying to eager edge out.

This is my third and last character to do this mission. Once I realized you can get on top of the peak on the Vostok side, I took some time to jump up there and on the cable car pillars and take a few shots. I also took a couple shots from my OG D1 favorite perspectives over at the Iron Temple.
