How to Use Photo Mode in Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Whether you’re exploring the lush, ominous jungles of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, or scrambling your way through an ancient tomb, there are plenty of stunning sights to be seen. Sure, Lara may have to take down a number of bad guys and save the world from a Mayan apocalypse, but everyone’s got to take a break from work every once in a while and take in the natural beauty of their surroundings. At least, you do if you end up in the places Lara does! If you want to capture any of the stunning sights you find yourself ogling at for future reference, or to show your friends, then photo mode might be for you. Here’s how to use photo mode in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
First off, you’ll need to press the Options button on PS4, or the Menu button on your Xbox One controller. This should open up Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s pause menu. From here, select the Photographer Mode option.
The photo mode in Shadow of the Tomb Raider largely works the same as it does in most games. You can adjust a number of settings, change the poses and facial expressions of characters in-shot, and tweak just about anything that’d stop you from getting the perfect shot.
Of course, it’s worth noting that photo mode can only be used on your current nearby surroundings within Shadow of the Tomb Raider. That means no going back two chapters to try and take an eerie-looking photo inside that ancient tomb that you really liked. If you want to snap that shot, you’ll need to go back there.
In order to actually take a photo in photo mode, all you need to do is use your system’s screenshot feature. You’ll probably want to hide the UI before you do that, which is highlighted by a button prompt on-screen.
And there you have all you need to know to use photo mode in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. For more tips, tricks, and information on the game, be sure to check out our ever-expanding wiki.
