One thing that was a big barrier when considering writing about video games was the lack of skill in taking screenshots. At least ones that dont clearly reveal whats behind the curtain and hint at my equipment for photography (i.e. My Iphone or Ipad). Looking around at my peers and noticing clearly better quality in their attempts, and having too young a presence or too little credabilty on any site to comfortably ask around, I figured to pull out the soap box, stand atop it, and shout for a helping hand.


Yay! My TV is in the shot

What are people using to take screenshots? Its to my understanding steam and other pc games have programs in place that take screenshots and add to internal databases, but what about console games? Trying to pull of that perfect action moment in-game, and finding the right angle at the same time mid battle isnt the easiest skill to master. And what for eliminating HUD elements? Any tips would be helpful, and choice of platform doesnt matter, I will take advice for any of them. Thanks!
