One of the things about Destiny that always gets me incredibly excited, is seeing the NPC’s in action. Sure, we see them everyday offering us powerful armor and weapons in the Tower, but to actually see them step onto the battlefield and fight alongside our Guardians, and showcase their true power? That, always gives me the chills.
.
So of course, this moment from the Curse of Osiris DLC really had me clapping and cheering, because not only is it an NPC in action, but it’s my Warlock Vanguard, and fabled Voidwalker, Ikora Rey!!
.
Ikora is one of the most fascinating NPC’s in the Tower in my opinion. I feel like at one point in time, every other major NPC had a voice line, offering their take on just how powerful, intelligent, and legendary she truly is. She’s one of the last Warlock’s you’d ever wanna mess with, that’s for sure!

Here’s a major throwback! I’ll never forget this screenshot session with the wonderful Queen Turkey herself, @klutzillah ! It was just less than a month before the release of Destiny 2! She had the idea to try and capture some photos rocking the full Hunter Dawning gear set! So, me being the type to always try and create elements that flow and compliment each other, picked out the perfect location! We traveled outside the Cosmodrome walls, back to where our Guardian’s journey first began! However, by doing so within a Rise of Iron story mission, we were were able to include some very cool snow effects!
.
I really love how the Dawning armor looks when captured hand in hand with the Trials of Osiris weaponry. It looks so seamless! So adding the Vision Stone Auto Rifle to the equation made perfect sense! We had a blast running around the area, telling jokes and admiring the nostalgia of our time in D1! And we walked away with some amazing screenshots too! These are the kind of memories I’ll always hold near to the heart!

There are few screenshots that I’ve captured that hit me as hard as this one. Whenever I imagine the context of this encounter, I imagine powerful emotion. This is a D1 photo that I captured of my warlock, The Man in Red, showing the Cabal exactly what he’s all about. Unmoved by adversity. Wholeheartedly fearless in the face of any and all opposing force. Willing to fight for everything he loves with unparalleled ferocity until his last dying breath.
.
This screenshot is taking it wayyy back to the good old days. Back to the beginning of The Taken King! I really love how emotes have become so much more extensive in D2! There are so many diverse and expressive options to choose from, and depending on the specific frame you choose to capture, a single emote can convey so many different things!

The Autumn Scout! That’s the β€œcode name” that I’ve been referring to this screenshot by for months! I really adore the theme of this one! It feels incredibly rustic, and reminds me so much of the Fall season! The star of this show is the Guardian, a Hunter specifically! Lone ranger of the frontier. Cunning, unpredictable, master of scouting and surveying any terrain! What’s more, she’s menacingly cloaked in all black, wielding one of Destiny’s most notorious Scout Rifles. The MIDA Multi-Tool! I can’t think of a better weapon to showcase in a screenshot of this variety! Godspeed to any Fallen or Cabal within earshot of her!
.
The color scheme here also plays such a beautiful supporting role in bringing everything together! Gorgeous tones of auburn and forest green properly set the stage, and hand in hand with all of the other elements at work here, brings life to who could perhaps be the most ruthless bane the EDZ has ever known, The Autumn Scout!

I’m always trying to push the limits of what I perceive to be possible in regards to capturing and editing my screenshots. I believe that sometimes, the greatest risks offer the greatest rewards, and that marvelous things happen when we push ourselves outside of our comfort zone. Running around an active Calus phase during my first Leviathan raid, with my HUD off, attempting to take screenshots instead of helping my team, was perhaps the greatest (and scariest) risk I could possibly take. But my goodness how it paid off!
.
This is one of those screenshots that I refer to as a β€œMiracle Shot” If you’ve been around me long enough, you’ve probably heard me say it a few times. I give this label to screenshots that literally could not be possible without the help of a higher power! (The Screenshot Gods, as I always say). A shot where many random elements, without any coordination, come together in just the right place, at just the right time, and are captured without any realization of what’s happening. This shot was not at all rehearsed, it was an accidental miracle that left me speechless!
.
There’s so much to talk about here! I knew I wanted to capture a β€œstaredown” shot between Emperor Calus and The Man in Red. But never did I imagine it to take such a brilliant form! The Guardians fighting overhead, the explosion in the middleground, the War Beast running across the screen. All of these things combine to form such a beautiful and active compliment to the primary focus, the staredown! Amidst all of the gunfire and chaos, I was able to capture the moment that time stopped, and the two legends, for but a brief moment, made eye contact!

I’ve been making a really serious effort lately to dig through my OneDrive, and edit a lot of my old shots from scratch. If you’re a D1 veteran, you’ll no doubt recognize this one! A fallen Guardian outside the entrance to the Temple of Crota.
.
You track his latest objectives in the first vanilla D1 story mission on Earth’s moon, entitled β€œThe Dark Beyond”. Upon further inspection of the notes you find in the colony base he set up shop in, it is revealed that the Guardian was searching for the temple. Though sadly, he was murdered and stripped of his light by the Hive before he was able to actually enter. What makes this scene so special is that itβ€˜s the origin of one of D1’s most recognizable Ghost lines. β€œWE’VE WOKEN THE HIVE!!”
.
Going back and revisiting these old shots is so nostalgic for me. I believe that while it’s very important to make forward progress, you must do so without ever forgetting where you came from. This screenshot brings me way back to the good old days!!

One of the many amazing screenshots that came out of yesterday’s photo session with my incredible friend, @klutzillah ! The goal of yesterday was to capture shots featuring the beautiful golden aura that she and her clan @we_misfits_ earned from their selfless efforts in assisting others through a Guided Games Raid!
.
When it was time to start brainstorming some ideas, I immediately began piecing together a theme in my head. Raid aura, raid gear, raid backdrop! I’ve been referring to this shot as β€œThe Nova Sword Shot” since I captured it. I tried my best to create a photo that both showcases the hard work of her brilliant clan as a whole, while also highlighting something that feels personal to her. If it’s one thing we all know about @klutzillah , it’s that she LOVES the color purple! So throwing a little Nova Bomb into to the mix really helped give a powerful purple flare that couples so beautifully with her raid gear and aura!!
.
I strongly encourage everyone to take some time and visit @klutzillah β€˜s page, as well as her clans page, @we_misfits_ ! They’re an incredibly helpful and well respected group of Guardians who dedicate their time to mastering the inner workings of the Leviathan, and it’s raid lairs, as well as assisting other Guardians in completing them!

This little gem actually stands proudly before you on Instagram by complete and total luck! I was on Destiny a couple days back, playing casually. I was patrolling Nessus, not actually looking for screenshots when I stumbled upon this area. I was just getting ready to turn the game off too!
.
I was preparing to capture this shot while it was still considered β€œday time” on Nessus, but as I was trying to figure out the best angle to take the shot, and turn my HUD off, it started transitioning into β€œnight time”. Which originally was not what I wanted. So I has to rush a bit. I captured the shot as it was transitioning, and hoped for the best. But what I actually ended up with was totally stunning, and as it turns out, much better than I was expecting! So I sent it straight to the One Drive, logged off Destiny, and got to work on editing! Ta-Da!!!
.
This is a perfect example of how at any moment, opportunity can present itself to you without warning! Capturing this shot was completely unscripted and happened very quickly! I love it so much!!

Another one of my older D1 screenshots, featuring one of my favorite Guardians! Miss Turkey, @klutzillah ! This has always been one of my favorite shots that I’ve captured of her Hunter! Be sure to stop by and show her and her amazing clan page @we_misfits_ a ton of love and support!! πŸ’œπŸ¦ƒπŸ˜‹πŸ™πŸΌ
.
Loading up private matches to take screenshots with people was one of my favorite things to do in D1! We always had a ton of fun, and caused a lot of mischief while doing it! But through all of the shenanigans, we were still always able to walk away with amazing shots like this! I’m just getting into private match screenshots in D2, and it looks promising!

For the longest time, I wasn’t even aware that Mercury had a lost sector. It was only by playing with a friend who pointed it out that I finally made the realization! Pariah’s Refuge is one of my favorite lost sectors in the game at the moment! Towering Vex statues, a library full of books and antiques, Osiris flags hanging from the walls. I love everything about the theme! It really makes me wonder what kind of purpose this place served before its untimely Vex invasion!
.
Above is a throwback screenshot that I captured while exploring this lost sector for the first time! β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Thankfully Iβ€˜ve had incredible luck in the past with taking screenshots of enemy bosses, and just adds in general. It can be really tricky to get up close while they’re shooting at you, or charging at you with a weapon of some sort. But they really are some of my favorite shots, because of how much they challenge me as an artist. They can be a real struggle, and they can make you want to just give up and kill them, but I’ve never been one to shy away from screenshot related challenges.
.
Here we have Mr. Thumos, The Unbroken! Cabal General, and one of the final roadblocks between you and Dominus Ghaul! He was very aggressive, and did quite a bit of jumping, shooting, and stomping. But I managed to get a rough idea of his movement patterns, adjusted my timing accordingly, and snagged this shot of him during my last Ikora Meditation! Only took about 10-15ish minutes!

One area that I feel like Curse of Osiris absolutely triumphed in is world design. The past, present, and future versions of Mercury are all so stunning and unique! Though we don’t often travel to the Simulant Future, everything about it, from its color scheme, to its backstory, is all incredibly fascinating to me!
