Before jumping in I need to make it clear that photo mode is not to be confused with the recently added Kurious Kamera gadget.

To use photo mode bring up the main screen that features shop, party setup, friends, and so on. On this screen you will see a camera icon. Highlight this camera icon to see Take Photo. Select this option to enter photo mode. In this mode you can take photos of your character. You can control a number of settings by opening the settings menu (top left corner in photo mode). These settings allow you to pose, emote, and so on.
