Default Tips for better screenshots?

Anybody have tips to get better screenshots? I'm having a hard time getting closeups and lower camera angles.

Also any tips on better lighting would be helpful. I tried equipping a fire beetle eye, but seemed a bit too warm colored.

My screenshots are going on this blog:

I like to take screenshots! But idk tips? Not sure Im qualified to give any but there is one camera that you can full 360 with to get some good angles, but if you walk forward from like the last time you used it it zooms in, so you have to step back to zoom out, which makes it strange and difficult.

But you can get a full body shot with it if you get it zoomed out and get some good angles

Uh the rule of thirds, keeping stuff in the proper corners. And taking the background into consideration, you want to get that bear's head on the wall in halas behind your bear hat selfie to have the right angle too.

A bunch of my screenshots are in my sig because I have no life [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Thanks for the tip!

Love that bandit train chasing you pic in your sig. How do you manage to take shots like that while avoiding imminent death? I'd probably end up futzing with the camera and dying.

Nice stories. They are really easy to read. And fun!

P.s. I use viewport so I don't have to hide my UI,I just crop it out.

If you add that line from Naethyn to get PNG files rather than bmp/jpg, you can probably see better image quality using lossless webp conversion on the unoptimized png files. You can handle the conversion in webpack/gulp if you're using that or you can just use a CDN that handles the webp conversion/fallback for browser support.
