It’s no secret that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is one pretty looking motherfucker, and the in-game Photo Mode really allows us to get the most out of those sweet visuals.
So as you can imagine, when you put a professional, award winning photographer in charge of the camera, the results are absolutely incredible.
Photographer Ray Soemarsono has uploaded a series of images he took in Uncharted 4. Soemarsono was actually named a Top Ten Wedding Photographer in the world by American Photo magazine, so the guy knows what he’s doing.
For anyone even vaguely wary of spoilers, I’d steer clear of his gallery (which you can find in full right here if you have finished the game).
For the rest of you though, here’s a delightful, none spoilery selection to enjoy.
That’s just a very small selection of a gallery comprised of 455 photos, documenting the entire game. Once again, if you aren’t bothered by spoilers, I strongly recommend checking out his Flickr gallery.
I’ve been a big fan of the Uncharted series and this final chapter of Nate’s adventure does not disappoint. This is by far, the most beautiful game I’ve ever played. The fact that Naughty Dog managed to put this into a console is nothing short of a technological marvel. The addition of the Photo Mode is a blessing for the photographer in me and a curse for the play time.
He said he stopped roughly every 10 seconds to take pictures, which is probably why there’s such a comprehensive selection of shots. The only adjustment made to the images was to brighten some of them.
Soemarsono runs the photography company Apertura alongside Erwin Darmali.
Ewan Moore is a journalist at UNILAD Gaming who still quite hasn’t gotten out of his mid 00’s emo phase. After graduating from the University of Portsmouth in 2015 with a BA in Journalism & Media Studies (thanks for asking), he went on to do some freelance words for various places, including Kotaku, Den of Geek, and TheSixthAxis, before landing a full time gig at UNILAD in 2016.
