Recently I've been getting into videogame photography or screenshotting. More and more games are launching or being updated with full camera tools incorporated, as well as the card maker Nvidia coming out with their built in 'Ansel' software. Photography is my actual trade but I'm also an avid gamer, so combining the two mediums like this is pretty appealing to me. Been playing around with it more and more so I hope people enjoy some of the shots I've taken from Alien and Predator game appearances. None of the images here were taken during cut-scenes or while locked in animations. They're in 1920x1080 so open the images in new tabs if that makes it easier to view them.

More can be found on my Steam screenshot page.

Also, I'd highly recommend checkout out the work of professionals such as DeadEndThrills and Petri Levälahti.

If you'd like to take your own...

For Isolation, you can find the third party camera tool here: https://github.com/aliasIsolation/aliasIsolation/releases
Be warned though, it makes the game unstable.

For Ghost Recon Wildlands, a camera tool was added in an update for the game: https://support.ubi.com/en-gb/Faqs/000039956/Photo-Mode-in-Ghost-Recon-Wildlands

For Aliens Colonial Marines, follow this guide to create a HUD toggle: https://steamcommunity.com/app/49540/discussions/0/540738051712517762/

I had to take shots while switching my weapon for ACM, and adjusting the FOV for the zoom. Cpl. Hicks helped me by posing as the Alien in some of the empty multiplayer maps.

For AVP (2010), I downloaded and added ikarop's no hud mod, which can be found here: https://www.moddb.com/games/avp2010/addons/avpgalaxy-no-hud-mod
And then same method as with ACM for the shots.

Good stuff.

ACM looks so bad.
But AVP and A.I look so good!

Thanks!

The ACM graphical fidelity leaves much to be desired, but it does have some cool environments. My main enjoyment of that game comes from it being a Sci-Fi museum of sorts. I want to try more shots with a few graphical enhancement mods applied.
