PRLog - Nov. 28, 2009 - WAYNE, Ill. -- Video Kraze, an electronics retailer, wanted to create a place where their customers could talk about a gamut of video game and photography topics as a larger experience past just shopping their virtual shelves. It is a forum for sharing experiences and stories focused around the video games and photo gear we all love to buy online.
Awesome Video Games & Tech Gear
The first blog, called Digital Cameras Planet, at http://www.digitalcamerasplanet.com provides video, stories, image, information and insight on topics including digital cameras, camera lenses, digital picture frame, telephoto zoom lens and camera bags.
The second blog, called Next Generation Video Game Consoles, located at http://www.nextgenerationvideogameconsoles.com provides information, pictures, video and experiences on topics surrounding Xbox 360 games, Nintendo DS Lite, game consoles, Nintendo Wii games and Sony PSP video games.
Below is a reprinted post, titled 21st Century Photographers Should Turn to Game Consoles, excluding the video in the actual post, from the Next Generation Video Game Consoles blog, to show off an example of what is being said within this social network:
I got this crazy idea while drooling over the near perfect graphics of Forza 3 seen in the video below. I had brought the game over to a friend’s house to show him what this racer is all about. He has a 42” 1080p plasma screen. I went to the in-game marketplace to check out how other gamers were taking pictures of their favorite scenes thanks to photo mode. I kid you not, there was one game consoles picture in particular that zoomed in real close on the right tailed end of a BMW M5 coming into a turn with a Lotus in front that could have doubled as a real picture. The frame was tight enough where all you could see was the M5 badge and the track ahead. The person had turned up the shutter speed so everything in the background was out of focus. In one word this Xbox 360 games picture was stunning.
I bet there will be some 21st century photographers out there who start taking in-game photos and pawning them off as real life or at least selling them as stock images for online publication. There is a new genre of photography out there and it is based around game consoles. I see more digital but real looking photos popping up in online publications to save money on capturing the real life moment of something like a race.
