At a certain point in the Main Quest, you will meet Robbie at the Lookout Landing. He is a very important character that is going to help you unlock several abilities and gadgets. One of these is the Camera. Robbie is soon going to present you with a quest called “Camera Work in the Depths”. You will have to enter the underground depths and search for Robbie. Once you have found him there, he is going to to give you the Camera and explain how to use it. For this, you’re going to have to take a picture of a nearby statue.

So go into your Abilities wheel and select the Camera. This will take you into the camera’s picture-taking mode. Unlike similar games where you often can’t be sure if you have aligned a shot correctly with your camera or not, Zelda TotK has a very useful QoL feature here. Namely, you will get a notification that let’s you know that you have done this the right way by writing out on the screen what you are taking a picture of. Then, snap the picture and you will be given the option of whether to save it to your album or to delete it. And that’s how you take pictures in Zelda Tears of The Kingdom.
