[line style=’solid’ top=’10’ bottom=’10’ width=’100%’ height=’1′ color=’blue’] Prompto’s photography skill is a passive ability that is used throughout your time playing Final Fantasy 15, requiring no input to progress. It generally progresses naturally as Prompto takes photographs of various things as you explore the game world.

At the end of each day Prompto will show you a list of photographs he has taken that day. You do have the option of saving the pictures into a gallery or even sharing them with your friends on social media, although this has no impact on leveling the skill itself.

Typically Prompto will take shots of exciting events throughout the day. Boss encounters, group exploration and meeting new figures within the story are all popular points for Prompto to take a quick snapshot.

At some points during the game you can influence Prompto’s photograph choices. When driving Prompto will ask Noctis what he wants to see in his photographs, you can reply with any of the main characters as a response – prompting Prompto (see what I did there?) to take more photographs featuring that specific character.

How To Level Photography Fast In Final Fantasy 15

[line style=’solid’ top=’10’ bottom=’10’ width=’100%’ height=’1′ color=’blue’] As it’s a passive skill there’s no technique to level Prompto’s photography skill really fast but there are things you can do. The more photographs he takes, the faster his skill levels so be sure to stop when you’re driving if he asks to take a photograph of nearby scenery.

If you arrive at a new town, search for the sign post of the town as these are often special photography points. Most diners also have a bench outside with a large, statue of a bird sitting on it. Getting in range allows for another picture opportunity. To level the skill a little quicker, just keep an eye out for this.

You unlock several filters which allow Prompto to add effects to photographs and also other skills such as Random Selfies and Frontline Photographer – which increases photographs of Prompto in a selfie and more pictures during combat respectively.
