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, as 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


 

Assassin


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @_TFoU_



“It is a good life we lead brother”


Words from Federico. The Auditore’s had a lust for life and that can also be said for Eivor and Sigurd. Eivor may not be an official Assassin but her morals and beliefs are not too dissimilar. This shot is all about the instrument of justice and it is beautifully showcased here. The lighting is immaculate, highlighting all the right details. I adore this hidden blade. The design is stunning and that gem elegantly rounds it off.

 

Starlight


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @DollyPlays_



“An ocean lies before us Eivor, and on its far side, a new Kingdom awaits.”


This capture reminds me of the opening of the game before you set off on your adventures with the Raven clan. I love the rays here, they are so beautiful. If you catch the sun right in Valhalla it always makes for a spectacular photo. That silhouette of Eivor is also magnificent, she looks poised to leave Norway in search of her destiny.

 

Swooping in


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @UVioletra



Visually this capture is phenomenal, I admire the landscape and incredible deep blue sea. The angle of the shot is dreamy allowing for a cinematic vibe, especially with Ikaros swooping toward us. I have been watching Moana with the kids recently and this shot definitely has a similar vibe. After some time away in England and its early medieval setting, I am eager to get back to some sun-drenched lands in Mirage. A truly colourful shot that can brighten anyone’s day.


 

Eivor of the Raven Clan


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @artschoolglases



If you’re a Valhalla fan or Vikings in general then you should definitely follow @artschoolglases


This week’s #Thorsday shot had to be this one. This armour set is easily my favourite along with that longsword. The lighting here is on point reflecting gracefully off the metal, and highlighting the incredible detail of this outfit. I think the shot works so well against the black background.


“I do not seek battles. Battle just seem to seek me”.


A fitting quote for Eivor as she fights for the safety of her clan.


 

Battle Elephant


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @theonlyjess_vp



I thought we would close out this week with a shot that took me back to the Lord of the Rings films. These boss battles were so cool in Origins despite the steep learning curve. Bayek looks like a fearless warrior charging towards that massive Elephant. Kudos to Jess for the tremendous camera angle, as it is not easy to get great shots like this as a portrait. A wonderful advert for replaying Origins again, as visually it still has it. Replaying Origins could be a nice way to prepare for the sandy deserts of Mirage.



The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week: Battle Elephant -


Judge: Michael Smith


''The epic scale of this image shows the powerhouse that are the war elephants in the side activities. The detailed armor for each of the various animals gives them personality and the photographer captured both detail and scale extremely well in this shot.''

 

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!
