Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - Vertical Gaming Photography

Production Notes

This gallery is a love letter to a game I am so fond of. Maybe the shots are not as creative, deep or dramatic like some other works of mine, but that wasn't really the point here. I just wanted to celebrate Chloe Frazer, the adorable elephants, the intricate jungle, the astonishing statues and the breathtaking adventure. Luxuriant India and a bellyful of colossal archeology were the best things that could still happen to Uncharted after A Thief's End. The Lost Legacy stands as a sumptuous testament of Naughty Dog's craftsmanship and a game of a beauty you can simply not imagine if you haven't played it.

Post-Production Breakdown

Only three shots from this gallery underwent some minor editing. I removed a very small branch from LIVIN' ON THE EDGE and lightened up the down-left corner which was too dark. In JUNGLE TAXI the characters' skin looked a little bluish, so I gave them a few points in red and yellow. To shoot a FACE OF INDIA I had to find a spot where I could both cheat the camera (normally you cannot get this close) and have a decent lighting. I found both of them at night under a lampost in Calcutta, but then I had to soften the yellow spot on Chloe's face to give the right emphasis to her eyes.
