Before you get into the different options available to you in this photo mode, let’s guide you through the basics. You can rotate the camera by using the right stick and you can reset it by pressing the same input. The Area of View adjusts the zoom of the camera, so if you want to get up close and personal with a dragon, increase the value of the meter.
