This Week in Assassin's Creed Virtual Photography: Feb 26th - 5th March 2022
Welcome to the new weekly virtual photography roundup hosted by Aaron Young from The AC Partnership Program.
Every week, we 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 II
This week’s first capture comes from @hannyafoxdie over on Twitter.
The scenery in Assassin’s Creed 2 is immense. The city of Venice is so vibrant, and this capture reflects it extremely well. I am always a fan of the protagonist standing on a rooftop.
The colour of the tiles really pops in this image. I certainly appreciate the larger buildings in the distance and the waterway just below.
2) The Seaside
Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Photo number two comes from @FeRa0408 over on Twitter.
This capture is so colourful and striking. Kassandra walking through the red plants is very iconic, giving me Gladiator vibes. There really is a lot going on here, with the flock of birds in the sky and the two ships floating in the water. This is possibly one of my favourite Odyssey shots.
Game: Assassin’s Creed
This week’s third shot comes from @realKICKFLIPKID over on Twitter.
Once again, we travel back to where it all began. I have not yet played the original since I entered the VP world. This is definitely a capture I would attempt, though.
I love the bright sun blazing in from the right and the birds circling in the air. I am particularly impressed by
the hidden blade sticking out as if Altair is about to strike.
4) Black and White
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
VP number four comes from @DagNammit86 over on Twitter.
Black and white shots can often get missed, but this one stood out to me. I really like the depth of field drawing your eye to the archway which seems to make this image so bright. The simplicity is a breath of fresh air, minus the civilian this shot is pure environment.
5) Egyptian Hedj
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins
The final capture of the week comes from @nkeiiin over on Twitter.
Bayek and Origins captures are my favourites. Once again great use of the depth of field, really makes Bayek stand out amongst the burning sun. Nice to see Bayek in the Hedj robes, such an underrated look. I was so happy when they returned in Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
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!
