50 Real-Life Photos That Look Like Screenshots Of A Video Game Or A Movie Set

From Blade Runner to GTA V, part of what makes blockbuster movies and video games so immersive is the incredible visuals. Even though it’s made up, the scenery looks so real, so palpable, it’s as if you’re almost there. Sometimes, however, you are. If only for a moment.

Our world is so diverse that there are places where you can actually feel like you’re in a different galaxy or even a 3D render. The surroundings, the lights, and a few random coincidences can make it look almost identical to your favorite productions.

So, to give you a well-deserved five-minute break, Bored Panda has decided to take you to these locations and we’ve collected the best photos that were taken there. Enjoy.

To learn more about what goes into producing such images, Bored Panda got in contact with Feed-the-good-wolf, the person behind the dreamlike photo of an altar inside an underground church which had over 24K upvotes on Reddit. “I took it with an iPhone 4 at the salt mines in Poland,” they said.

“There was an eerie medieval vibe in the church but it was very surreal too. It’s a mixture of the textures and lighting as well as the fact that there were so many right angles that make the pic look like a video game,” Feed-the-good-wolf explained. “This altar is entirely carved out of salt.”#3

Next day, the dawn was a brilliant fiery red and I wandered though the weird and lurid landscape of another planet; for the vegetation which gives Mars its red appearance had taken root on Earth.

We also looked at some tips online and learned that pretty much everyone can take cinematic photos.

To start, ask yourself what makes something look picturesque in the first place. Study your favorite movies. But don’t just watch them, try to identify how you can interpret their essence visually.

You don’t have to stick to one particular genre when looking for cinematic inspiration. Yes, you can learn a lot from watching action movies but there’s also animation, documentary films… the list goes on. You can broaden your influences by researching lists of films online, such as IMDb’s Top 50 Most Beautiful and Visually Stunning Movies.#6
