Photo Mode Tips
Adjust the Filter Intensity, Vibrance, and Saturation on your desired filter for a wider range of colors.
Be sure to add a vignette when appropriate to give your shot more depth.
Don't be afraid to roll the camera a little bit, especially when shooting combat. It can make your screenshots feel more dynamic and less like the camera is always shooting from a fixed horizontal position.
If you like to take vertical shots, you can roll the camera 90 degrees to give yourself the much-needed headroom.
Remember, lighting is everything! Your screenshots will really pop if the subject of your shot is properly lit. Know where your light source is when entering Photo Mode to give your subject proper visibility.
Take your time looking for a shot you're happy with. A lot of times, you can enter photo mode thinking of taking a specific shot only to find something else better during that moment. Explore with the camera and move about the scene and see what jumps out at you.
