Virtual Photography

Cool piece by Rainer Sigl for Kill Screen Daily about the new trend of people taking images of in-game worlds:

For the first time, a new crop of in-game-photographers are travelling  these gaming spaces to hunt for pictures. And just like their real-world counterparts, these photographers bring their own tastes and their own unique viewpoint to their art: Some of these pictures remind us of Ansel Adams’ majestic portraits of nature, others turn architecture into abstract collages, reminiscent of the works of Ernst Haas and Andreas Gursky.

There’s some neat stuff going on in this space, and they have linked to some neat blogs that showcase these kinds of images in the article.
