This Week in Assassin's Creed Virtual Photography: 20th - 26th August 2022
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 capture across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.
1) Kassandra & Ikaros
Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
First up we have a delightful shot of Kassandra and Ikaros having an intimate moment. The timing to achieve such a capture is impeccable. This has to be up there with one of my favourite photos from Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
I have to mention the use of colour, it really is done to perfection. The photo looks almost painting like in how it is presented. I think Kevin has really captured the bond between Kassandra and Ikaros, beautiful work.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Next up we have a wonderful shot of the sun reflecting off the water in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. At first glance this photo could be mistaken for real life.
The details and ambiance are so magnificently captured. I really like the person out on the boat, and the snow topped mountains in the distance. It is worth checking out the full set using the link below. These are some of the best atmospheric shots I have seen.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
It is Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood week for the AC15 celebration, and it felt wrong not to include a shot from that game. Lucky for me we have someone who is great at capturing moments in the older games. What I love about this shot is how it represents playing the game.
We are in the perspective of the player and that is something not often seen in the newer games. The deep colours in this shot are splendid and the red of Ezio’s outfit really stands out. A classical capture from a legendary game.
Game: Assassin’s Creed
Photo number four continues the themes of the previous shot. Traditional in style, we see the Assassin who started it all. This is a beautifully constructed shot that amplifies a game that is 15 years old.
You can see why a remake is so sort after. The colours here are fantastic and I love how Altar stands out amongst the crowd. It is great to see lots of captures from the older games, I hope it continues after the celebrations come to an end.
5) Ice Cold
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
The final capture of the week comes from @Spiggy_Smalls over on Twitter.
The final shot appeared on my feed this week and I could not help but admire it. There is so much to like about this photo. Obviously the positioning of this shot is the standout with the camera looking through the trees. However that is not the only thing I love about this capture.
I really like that Eivor’s sat on the horse atop a rock, looking out over the lands. The church in the distance, masked by the fog is a fantastic addition. What a stunning photo, worthy of being on a canvas.
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!
