Photography Mechanic

Hey,

I’m trying to make a 3rd person shooter adventure game on UE4, with the main mechanic being the protagonists Camera. I would like the player to aim with the camera the same way you zoom in on a weapon scope, except showing a camera overlay, and being able to save the photos taken. I found a plugin that seemed to do what I had in mind but it seems to have been abandoned. I came across the NVIDIA Ansel Photography Plugin, and was wondering if anyone had any insight on it? Would I somehow be able to add an overlay to it?
I am very new at this, and have no programming knowledge, any advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Ansel is a tool to take screenshots within a game, it’s not like a photography mechanic in-game.
