Welcome to the weekly virtual photography roundup hosted by Aaron Young from The AC Partnership Program.

Every week I will be picking our top 5 favourite Assassin’s Creed shots and showcasing them on The Ones Who Came Before website, in order to promote virtual photography and talented content creators within the community.  


Aaron is a keen virtual photographer and loves to post his journeys through Assassin’s Creed on Twitter.

Keep an eye on the site as more weekly shots are added, we are looking for captures across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.


This week’s theme: Assassin’s Creed

 

Guardian


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @Pibu_Ra


First up this week we have a gorgeous shot of Bayek stood atop a building. The burning colours of the sunset are just delightful. The silhouette of Bayek in the Horus outfit with Senu on his arm is just perfect. I must mention the birds in the sky too. Everything is aligned so well in this capture. It reminds me of the moody cinematography of The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Taking Flight


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @VirtualCaptures


Next up we have a shot that represents the beauty of Assassin’s Creed Origins. This capture is from a stunning set of four shots that are all magnificent. What drew me to this photo is the deep, rich colours that are a staple of Origins. I love the bird taking flight and the NPC in his straw boat. The cloud formations above just add to the elegance of this shot.

Senu


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @blackdog_vp


I could not resist selecting this shot for the weekly showcase. Despite an abundance of Senu/Ikaros shots recently, this one stood out due to it amazing perspective. Senu looks elegant as ever soaring over Alexandria. Capturing the lighthouse in the background with the smoke rising from the top is nothing short of genius.


The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week: Judge: Colum Blackett (Col_96)


This is such a unique capture that demonstrates a clever use of the photo mode tool. I particularly like the contrasting colours within this shot, and use of perspective to create an optical illusion where the eagle appears to be a similar size to its surroundings. Seeing Senu in flight passing the Lighthouse of Alexandria immediately makes me think of Bayek the protector, keeping a watchful eye over his beloved Aya. This would make a great phone background.

 

Daredevil


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @MissEvieFrye


A new hashtag from our friend’s @CreedScholars brought about this unbelievable shot from Miss Frye. I am a massive fan of this VP artist, and this shot is up there as one of my favourites. I am getting huge Daredevil vibes from this capture. The hood, eye mask and wild hunt tattoo make for such a striking shot. I would not be messing with Eivor looking like this.



 

Eivor Varinsdottir


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @TuridTorkil


We end this week with a beautiful black and white portrait of Eivor. Black and white VP can be so impressive but often under used. There is a clean look to this shot and that really helps highlight the amazing details on Eivor’s face. I love the hair and tattoo combination with the face scar really prominent. The winner though is her look, excellent camera positioning.  


 

 

And that sums it up for this week’s Assassin’s Creed virtual photography recap list!


Thank you for checking out this week’s photo collection. This would not be possible without the virtual photographers out there so a huge thanks to them. Until next week keep those shots coming in!
