When Video Game Screenshots Look More Like Photos

Andy Cull and Berduu, who are photographers and screenshotters, have made a gallery called the “Reality Bytes”. The purpose of the exhibit is to present stunning images captured in video games; images that break the line between real and virtual worlds.

You can see the example of their amazing work bellow. Some images were taken using screen capture software, while others were taken by game’s custom photo mode. It is important to note that not a single image was manipulated by photo editing software.

Hardly anybody suspected that the images were not the real photography but computer screenshots. When you take a look at the shot of F-14, it looks astonishing, but when you take a closer look, you can see some blocky textures in the details. The gallery’s biggest accent is on the fact that the depth of field effects, HD textures and lightening in majority of todays games is highly developed and the game’s screenshots can be as much seriously taken as professional photography is.
