Question: What's the best way to capture a dark fur Khajiit in a screenshot?

My main is a black Khajiit and I have yet to find a way to get a good screenshot of her. Her face is always so dark it loses all detail.

Any suggestions?

    Be sure your character is facing the best light source . Try using emotes like /torch that will light up your face as well .

    The light has to be really bright like the orb memento but that's so awkward to most times. Even if it's daylight and she is facing the sun her face is still dark in the screenshot. It's such a shame because she is so pretty.

    Are you sure it's not your monitor settings? My best friend mains a black khajiit and her screenshots are always really clear to me. But my screen also blinds my friend. I have it at default settings (not a laptop) but with contrast tweaked a little so nothing looks washed out.

    Edit: Can you post one of your screenshots here?

    This one also has an all black Khajiit.
    Choose a location with a good light source, that usually works for me. You can also alter the view setting in-game for a screenshot (gamma ratio influences light)

    Holding a torch perhaps?

    In housing you can put lights where you need them I highly recommend psijic lanterns and fireplaces to cast reflective light on darker surface, make sure the Gfx settings are on ultra since frame rate is not important for screen shots, make sure the dynamic lighting is set to SAOO or whatever to get shadows and reflective lighting ^_^

    This is the only one I have handy on mobile. She looked well lot in the game but then in the actual file it's hard to see the details of her face.

    Here is another where I took a snap of the character select screen and cut it out. This one isn't too bad but she is still less detailed than the lighter character on the right. ijsgtvj3m8sp.png
