Hi there!

WTF is this? - I don't blame you if these were your first thoughts upon visiting this website. But something sparked your interest, since you clicked on the "About" link, so I owe you an explanation. The short answer: This website is about photography - virtual and traditional. It's about documenting the beauty of videogames and the world through taking a picture, and posting it here. Or at least, that's what I'm attempting to do. Success is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

How I got to this point? Well, a few years ago I stumbled upon a website called Dead End Thrills, a project dedicated to showcase videogames through taking screenshots of them. I decided to give it a go as well, starting with a game called Noctuelles, and was immediately hooked. I've created this site as an archive for my pictures and have been uploading them ever since. As time went on, I started to dabble in "traditional photography" as well, using some of my knowledge from taking screenshots as a starting point.

Editing

Like most photographs, Snapshots are usually edited in Luminar, although I try to stay away from extreme changes to the image. Screenshots however are often untouched. I usually only capture gameplay and no cutscenes, and do not alter the image file in any photo editing software (besides panorama stitching and downscaling). So any corrections such as filters were applied directly to the game. What you see is what you (can) get.

Licensing

See something you like? Great, because most images (unless otherwise specified) are released under the Creative Commons license, meaning you're free to share and adapt them for non-commercial uses, as long as you give credit. For some screenshots I also have a much higher resolution file available, contact me if you're interested in those (for whatever reason).
