    This achievement is earned for finding optional photo #1. If missed on the first run, you can "Play Episodes" and select specific parts of the Episode in order to find the missing optional photos through collectibles mode. The following collectible is described and can be seen below:

    [6:14] - Optional Photo #10
    In the nightmare stealth section you'll end up at the junkyard and you'll need to collect all 5 bottle scattered around this small area. After collecting them, go to the next area and find the bottles on the desk. Take a photo of them and they will break, getting the last photo!

    Collecting all 10 photos will also reward you with the following achievement:

    Meszerus I see the above two people eventually unlocked the achievement, but for others who find that the bottles are permanently smashed and thus can't unlock the achievement, there is one workaround I've found that I used & successfully popped the achievement with.

    Go to 'Play Episodes', 'Chapter 5', but instead of selecting 'Nightmare' to start from, start from 'Beach' (the scene just before Nightmare). When given the option of how to play this scene, I selected "Restart this chapter using Slot 2" (I had snapped the photo originally on Shot 1). Play through Beach (it's really short, it's just a single dialogue), thus naturally progressing into Nightmare, and making your way to the junkyard area. This time the bottles WILL have reset, allowing you to collect them and photo them again. This allowed me to pop the achievement.

    Note that it doesn't work if you go straight into Nightmare. By playing from a previous scene, it works. I don't know if it matters what save Slot you use.

    DunderMifflin83 I noticed it was 6 bottles needed. Not 5

    Z Squared91 I didn't get the achievement the first time I took the picture, but it unlocked after I followed Meszerus' directions. Thanks!
