Posted 20 November 2013 - 10:48 PM Edited by stobe187, 3 weeks ago. Added rule.

Like the topic suggests, I'm interested in collecting some nice TIGHTLY CURATED snaps from real-life photographers who've taken up Snapmatic to do some virtual street/aerial/landscape etc. shots.
 
This thread can also work as a place to discuss the game mechanics relating to Snapmatic and/or the Social Club side too – improvements you'd like to have, wishes, complaints.
 
Here are the rules:
 
1. No selfies. Period.
 
- Selfies just don't fit the tone of the thread and the look we are going for here. There are other threads you can post your "funny" selfie with burning paramedics in the background but please, keep em off this one.
 
2. No generic car shots. A vehicle can still be used as a prop in a "scene" though.
 
- This includes for example a 10 car meetup in GTAO with multiple personal vehicles and players dicking around / flashing gestures or really basic shots of cars with no thought put into the location/background.
 
3No multiplayer goofyness/hilarity.
 
- This includes all GTAO pics that are just random snaps of multiple players f*cking around. If you set up a certain scene with you friends though, it's welcome. But make it great and inventive!
 
4. No glitching/cheating related shots.
 
- This includes floating cars, glitching peds, clipping bugs, graphical bugs and pretty much all "abnormal" behavior of the game.
 
5. Be critical when selecting your pictures.
 
- Do multiple passes of quality control: if you for example feel that there are two much too similar shots in the set you are about to post, take out the one that you feel is inferior. If you feel that there is even the slightest thing that feels "off" about the pic, it's a safe bet to remove it from the set. Be critical and most of all, honest to yourself.
 
6. Don't post multiple shots of the same subject matter.
 
- This means that don't post 5 sunset shots that have all been taken at the same spot with the same framing but with only a marginal difference in lighting. Try to keep it fresh, varied and interesting.
 
7. Keep the number of pictures per post fairly low.
 
- This basically reinforces the fifth rule, and helps you carve out the real winners of the bunch.
 
8. No meme texts.
 
- Once again, they really don't fit the tone here.

 

9. Don't quote pictures.

 

- If you want to quote a post that contains some pictures, then either remove the pics or just remove the IMG tags to keep the links in the quote.
 

10. Repeated advertising for your Social Club site, crew or Youtube channel is prohibited.

 

- This thread is about pictures, not spamming links and getting your rep up on youtube etc.
 
----------------------
 
 
And here's some random bits & pieces:
 
 
- be inventive: try to find new angles, try out strange crops etc.
- frame your shots as clean as possible (check out the far edges of the preview shot on the phone so that there is no random sliver of car hood poking out of one corner)
- shoot peds doing their activities
- experiment with taking a shot of something with the widest zoom and then zoomed all the way
- think of the entire frame
- experiment with different times of day and weather combos
- experiment with shooting from vehicles, for example when you're sitting in an Adder the angle is a lot closer to the ground.
- get tilted shots by being on a bicycle or motorcycle
 
----------------------
 
I'll begin:

While I do appreciate the whole f*ck art POV too, I am actually hoping this thread would get some real participants also.

 

ps. HQ prints from 360p images? That's some C.S.I image enhancing sh*t right there!

I'm not sure how many actual "professional" photographers you'll get, but.... As a photography student my best portrait thus far is probably this one in the game. I'm not interested in live subjects, so yeah. I was just bored and it turned out neat.

But I should probably leave this thread to its intended purpose and go away now.

I love your pictures, though! Really awesome!

Thanks!
 
If you are bored and want to check out more, here's a huge (6400x7200px) collage of my shots I just spliced together:
 
 
As for the improvements, I'd very much like the ability to tilt the camera. Currently if I need a tilted angle on a shot I have to be on a bicycle and that makes it a bit cumbersome. Not to mention you can only have it tilted to one side. Maybe the player could use the d-pad left/right for tilting the camera angle? One more idea to whizz to Mouthoff..
 
I understand and accept that apertures, shutter speeds and all that jazz are of course too "pro" to add but I'd still love a bit more functionality on the camera!

I particularly like the first pic with the view through the fence...it gives me an impression of someone who's cooped up in confines of some sort, and they're thinking "man, can't wait to get out of here and see what's out there". The other pics are pretty good too lol. Looks like the guy with the gun is wearing a bucket hat...or is that another name for a boonie hat? I've never seen the term "boonie hat" before lol.

We have a pinned thread for Snapmatic pics. I will keep this open only for review.

It'd be awesome if we could actually buy a DSLR instead of being stuck with the phone's camera. I see NPC's with them all the time.

But my aim was to establish a more "serious" thread with fellow real-life photographers, if you know what I mean?

 

Considering the wealth of themes and subjects (crew poses, crew car shots, landscapes, glitches, bizarre happenings, portraits, street shots etc etc) that can be presented through the Snapmatic camera, do you really mean to mush em all up into one thread?

 

It just seems like a huge hassle to find certain types of shots or shots with a certain theme if they are all randomly splattered throughout a 40-60 page thread. Who in the world has the patience to trudge through it all?

Considering that I love street photography in real life, I think having a DSLR in GTA V would be an extraordinary timesink for me! Perhaps too much even.
