Video game photography has definitely seen its rise during the pandemic. While photographers have been able to capture photos within video games and their own stories, now there’s a game that’s completely dedicated to photography. Photography Simulator is, as the name suggests, a game that lets you become a photographer in a virtual world.
For those who hate having to actually get up off their computers and leave the house, photography can be a potentially tricky prospect. Now, Nvidia have presented the world with a possible solution to this problem in the form of Ansel; An in-game “camera system”. Ok, so it’s not really photography, but it is quite an interesting technology.
The Ansel photo mode allows you to step outside of the game’s predetermined destiny for your character, and allow you to position your camera and compose your shot with a fully free form camera, with full 360 degree stereoscopic abilities viewable on a range of devices including your mobile phone.
