It’s the time of year for nog, tobogganing, and other things with “og” in them. It’s also the time for finals, hectic present shopping (PS – do you know we’re having a guild Secret Santa?), and playing LOTS of video games during break. Hopefully somewhere in between all this business, you can find time for a few screenshots!
The Sky’s the Limit: The land of Tyria is wondrous, but what about the sky? Nighttime, daytime, during rain or snow or lightning storms. Take a picture of a stunning sky! There can be other objects framing it, but the focus should be on the sky itself: try to have it cover 75%+ of the shot.
Miracle of Flight: Birds can fly. Dragons can fly. Griffons can fly. And now, people can fly! Take a shot of something flying, whether it’s you or something else!
Wintersday Cheer: Ho-Ho Tron shouldn’t have all the fun. Find Santa Claus, throw a snowball, hang out near a festive Dolyak, or just make snow angels! Find something that says “wintersday” to you!
