Game modes that allow players to take pictures of their adventures and exploits are becoming more popular in many games. But what if someone wants to get a good shot of their adventures through post-apocalyptic New England? A new mod on NexusMods will give those who play Fallout 4 an opportunity to embrace their inner Ansel Adams with Fallout 4 Photo Mode.

Uploaded yesterday by a user named "reg2k," the Fallout 4 Photo Mode mod does exactly what it says on the tin by adding a photo mode to Fallout 4, which can be accessed through the game's pause menu. The photo mode, highly inspired by other games' implementation of the same concept, comes with many of the tools needed to take impressive photos. Alter the field of view to capture intimate moments or sweeping vistas! Change the speed of time in order to capture the perfect moment! Play around with a variety of effects like brightness, contrast, and color filters! You can do all of these things and more as you make yourself a post-apocalypse scrapbook.

Bethesda's take on the Fallout series has given players the opportunity to explore vast post-apocalyptic wastelands filled with places to explore and people to meet and possibly shoot. But none of these games has ever given players a good tool for capturing those special moments. So it's great to have players willing to make those tools for other players. Hopefully when their new Elder Scrolls game releases they'll have a photo mode for their new big game without modders having to add it in.

The Fallout 4 photo mode mod and the instructions for installing it can be found here. This mod requires the Fallout 4 Script Extender mod in order to run, and it's suggested users also download the Mod Configuration Menu if they want to set a hotkey for photo mode or configure the mod in-game.
