Red Dead Redemption 2 is a perfect game to get lost during the current COVID-19 crisis. It’s detailed, it’s immersive, there are a plethora of side quests you can get lost in, and it’s very long.
Some photographers have found much-needed relief in this hit game from Rockstar. They are currently using Red Dead Redemption 2 to take photos during quarantine.
A professional photographer by the name of Craig Whitehead, who goes by the name of “Sixstreetunder” loves taking artistic photos, but cannot currently do so in quarantine. So he took photos around Saint Denis in Red Dead Redemption 2 to stay sane. Photographers Are Using Their Photo Skills In Red Dead Redemption 2 While Stuck In Quarantine
“To stay sane while stuck inside, I joined a few who are using Red Dead Redemption 2 and Saint Denis as their surrogate city for the next few weeks. I only had one hour in town (I skipped much of the actual game and just went up there), but it’s pretty hard to chase the light that moves with the game. ”
Due to the shorter “day” of the game, light tends to move much faster, casting shadows in different ways.
Some of the photos that Whitehead and other photographers have taken are breathtaking and appear to belong to some sort of professional gallery.
