    From Ross:

    Hello, my name is Ross. Me and my friend, DHG Mr Mojo, are running an account on Instagram dedicated to Halo photography! We upload screenshots from both Reach and 4; old or new that have either caught our eye or are exceptional and deserve more attention than they are receiving. For gamers who want to be Halo photographers, this is a good place to start. It’s a great way to get yourself off the ground and get all your shots into most downloaded and most recommended. It can be found on Instagram by searching @screenshotsforhalo on the ‘Discover’ tab or you can find us through this direct link. Thank you for your time!
