To quote: Tearaway is about going on an adventure. It's a very personal journey between two people: you, and your new messenger friend.

If you're going on an adventure, you're likely going to see lots of amazing things, and you'll probably want to tell people about them. That's why we gave Iota and Atoi their own cameras!

As soon as we put the camera into Tearaway, the whole studio started documenting and sharing their journeys through the vibrant, papery landscapes, and in addition to providing us with mementos, it was clear that it could be a great avenue for creativity, too. If you know anything about us, you'll know that's something we can't help but include in our games.

You'll be awarded the camera early in your adventure. It comes with a kit lens, with a nice depth of field, and you can get snapping straight away.

The photo mode allows you to capture the best moments and save them so you can show your grand kids long after all your teeth have fallen out.

1. Subject and Timing - Sometimes in MotorStorm you'll want to reach for your trusty Photo Mode because something made you laugh out loud, other times because you think "oooh, purrrrdy..." but in both of these cases and most others, you'll be looking for action.

Action is all about timing, so you need to hit that Pause button and engage Photo Mode at just the right moment. Get this bit right and you can fiddle with the other settings and the try out the tips below to your heart's content.

2. Framing and composition - This is one of those things that some people find natural, and others need to give it a lot of practice.

You can apply a couple of simple rules to all images that will improve their composition straight off, the main one being the 'rule of thirds',...
