The Witness drops you on a beautiful island full of mind-melting puzzles that subtly feed into one another. It's a relaxing, picturesque locale that you can now photograph with NVIDIA's Ansel in-game camera. Unlike a regular screenshot tool, which simply captures what you're looking at, this software allows you to reposition the camera almost anywhere. That freedom can produce some incredibly artistic shots -- to get an idea of what's possible, just look at these screenshots taken with a similar system inside Uncharted 4 (courtesy of Engadget's own Tim Seppala).

With Ansel, you can capture screenshots beyond your monitor's maximum resolution, which is great for high-res wallpapers and art prints. You can also capture 360-degree panoramas, which are viewable with Google Cardboard, and tweak the final image with a variety of filters and color enhancements. All you need is a supported NVIDIA GPU and the latest NVIDIA drivers installed on your gaming PC. Once you're up and running, it's just a matter of pressing alt-F2 to bring up the relevant control panel. Now you can be a video game photojournalist. Or photographer. Or whatever we're calling this lovely new form of video game documentation.
