An augmented reality photography assistant or a virtual reality photography assisted mode allows a photographer to compose a particular shot and save the settings for that particular shot. The settings can include more than just typical camera settings like white balance, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings. The saved settings can also include positions of objects or persons within the particular shot, orientation of the camera itself, or physical location of the camera. The photographer can pass the camera or the saved settings to another person to take the particular shot. In a viewfinder or other shot-framing device of a camera featuring a virtual reality or augmented reality environment, the other person may see a series of guidelines or other positioning guides that allow the other person to compose the shot as the photographer envisioned. Alternatively, the photographer could save or receive the necessary settings and replicate a photo taken previously or recreate a photo taken by another photographer.
