This is a new one to me. Based on this question on main, what size image does virtual photography produce?, is "virtual photography" on topic here?
In the context of the question on Main, "virtual photography" is about in-game "photography" in some video games. Apparently those games have "photo mode", allowing the photographer to compose, set exposure, control for focal length, bokeh, etc. This is apparently a growing thing on Instagram, taking life-like "photos" in games.
A couple references:
- Digital Camera World article re: landscape photographer using virtual photography for teaching fundamentals, compositions, etc.
- 14 "best" games for virtual photography (also a DCW article)
My initial gut reaction was to migrate the question to Graphic Design, but after chatting over there, they didn't seem to want the question, and suggested maybe SuperUser. But I'm not as concerned about this (Main) question in particular, but the general concept of "virtual photography". Is it a fancy extension of graphic arts and graphic design? Or does it's emulation of the photographic process allow it to cross over into being on-topic here?
