One of the latest events in Genshin Impact is the rerun version of Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens: Greenery Chapter. For those who have played the first one, they will know that we need to help an illustrator named Asagiri from Inazuma to take pictures all around Teyvat.

But she doesn’t want any pictures, as you need to follow her notes and go to a specific location and replicate the situation she wants before taking the photo. Follow this guide to complete the event in a flash and gain your 420 Primogems.

The Greenery Chapter is the second chapter of the Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens event in Genshin Impact, and it is available in-game from November 16 at 10:00 AM (UTC+8) until December 05. You still have the time to start and complete this event by talking to Asagiri in Inazuma near the Komore Teahouse.

However, there are some requirements you need to complete:

  1. Reach Adventure Rank 30
  2. Complete the Archon Quest ‘Ritou Escape Plan’
  3. Complete the World Quest ‘Snapshots’

If you want a better experience, you can also complete Yoimiya and Tartaglia’s Story Quest first as they had a cameo in the event, although it’s only for a few days. If you didn’t complete their Story Quests yet, you can still enter this event by clicking ‘Quick Start’ on the event page.


Instructions to Play ‘Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens’ event in Genshin Impact

Go under the Gadget tab to equip the Kamera (Image via HoYoverse)

Before starting any challenge, don’t forget to equip the Kamera from your Inventory under the gadget tab. Once you equip it, there will be options for ‘Prepare to Photograph’ on every designated photo-taking spot.

Adjustment phase where you can adjust the frame (Image via HoYoverse)

Before taking a photo, you will enter two phases: the adjustment phase and the photo-taking phase. For the adjustment phase, you can determine the Kamera frame’s angle and position, either by doing it manually from the zoom in / zoom out / dragging the frame to choosing one of the templates on the top of the screen.

Although you are free to adjust the frame however you want, make sure to include the photo-taking point (small white circle) that can be seen in the image above. Some photo-taking spots have more than 1 point, so you need to pay attention. But this phase can be done easily by choosing any of the templates that were given on the top as it will automatically include all the photo-taking points. Once you’re done with the settings, click Enter to move on to the photo-taking phase.

Now for the photo-taking phase, this is where you need to move your character accordingly to Asagiri’s note. Each spot has different requirements, but you can see the list on the left side of the screen. Once every list has the green checkmark, immediately press Z / tap the Kamera gadget to take the photo and complete the challenge.

Challenge Completed after all requirements are met (Image via HoYoverse)

‘Challenge Completed’ will be mentioned on top of the screen if you manage to take the best picture that Asagiri wants. You can either leave, view and save the image, or keep taking photos. You do not have to save the photo as the event will automatically mark this spot as completed and unlock the rewards for you.
