Give people the power to stage their own screenshots, as The Last of Us: Remastered does, and something magical happens. Artistic, even.
Folks like AlphaPot, who snapped the stern-looking Joel above, are putting the new photo mode to good use. Sometimes this means taking pictures of ridiculous things like Joel's teeth. But most of the time, people take advantage of better angles, graphics and filters to stage great scenes in The Last of Us.
Here's a small selection of some of my favourite screenshots taken using the new photo mode that I've seen floating around the web.

Some screenshots are particularly creative. This collection by thehammerofthor72, for example, pretends Ellie took the time to snap a selfie during key (read: inappropriate) moments of The Last of Us. You know, like a real teen would.
Hiking through the woods with the old man. He looked at this picture and said that J.J. Abrams would be proud of my lens flare. I have no idea what the fuck that means. #whatevs #thewoods
About to go fuck shit up in the graveyard. Joel won't smile for my pictures. #grumps #endureandsurvive
OK... bear with me here, I'm gonna try out a new sexy face. Does this one work? #ooohsosexy #duckface
OK, this is fucked up. I just saved Joel's arse and he yelled at me. #bullshit
You can check out more Ellie selfies right here — they're kind of hilarious.
Not every screenshot is super serious, of course...
