This Week in Assassin's Creed Virtual Photography: 27th August - 2nd
Welcome to the weekly virtual photography round up 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.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Console: PS4
First up this week we have a wonderful set of shots from Eivor’s Settlement in England. I really enjoyed having a home base in Valhalla, it gave me a real sense of achievement each time I returned. The edit on this set really gives off the sense of a Viking home.
Taken during the Sigrblot festival, we are treated to some great shots of a decorated settlement. I particularly like the capture inside the longhouse. Fantastic Scandinavian vibes, reminds me of the Vikings TV series.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins
Next up we have a fabulous capture of the lighthouse in Alexandria. The saturation of this shot is perfectly executed. I love the orange reflection of the sun on the water and the shadows of the boats as they navigate the waters around the great city.
The stand out though has to be the lighthouse, always a great place to take a photo in Origins. The beautiful architecture and the burning light on the top make for such beautiful photo opportunities.
3) Ready for Battle
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
This week’s third shot comes from @Ao_sly over on Twitter.
I have such respect for this shot as the pose is one I often try to achieve myself. Timing is always critical with these captures as they can look odd if not done correctly. This one, however, is flawless, every little detail has been captured brilliantly.
I am impressed with Eivor’s hand reaching for her weapon, but at the same time the hood is raised giving a slight assassin feel. I think the outfit combo works brilliantly, with the stomach tattoo giving the shot that Norse feel. A fantastic capture worthy of the Ragnarok setting.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Console: Xbox One X
VP number four comes from @xo_Sweet_Pea over on Twitter.
Photo number four continues on from the previous shot with a hauntingly beautiful portrait of Eivor. The decision to go with a black and white photo here is what makes it a winner. It highlights the face tattoo so well, which gives huntress vibes. The look isn’t too dissimilar to Kassandra’s huntress set either.
Once again I love the use of the hood which adds to the shadows in this shot. It is also great to see Eivor’s braided hair poking out without any clipping. A truly wonderful capture of our favourite Viking raider.
5) Lion King
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins Console: PS4
The final capture of the week comes from @SoldjahOfLighta over on Twitter.
The final shot of the week is in keeping with my attempts to find great animal shots. This particular photo is from a set that showcases this Lioness exquisitely. I am actually is awe of how good this is, the level of detail on the lion is excellent.
Sometimes when taking shots of NPC’s/wildlife the fine points are not as crisp as the main character. When I saw this capture, though, it just reminded me of a wildlife documentary.
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!
