Virtumory - Virtual Memories, is a project ignited by my passion. I perceive video games as immersive experiences like traveling, literature, cinema, and social interaction. I strive to capture those cherished moments and create lasting memories. As an experienced artist, I have long been mesmerized by the enchanting allure of game visuals, their power to evoke emotions and their remarkable ability to transport players into immersive gaming worlds.
3D models and game worlds ARE NOT crafted by me; they are the creations of their respective creators. Consider me a traveler, equipped with a camera, wandering through virtual worlds. However, the in-game photography, the chosen compositions, the selective lighting based on sun position and time of day, and the subtle post-processing and color grading are my artistic contributions. The images encapsulated are a product of my own gameplay and composition, independent of pre-set cinematics. Despite being captured on a modest GTX1060 video card, these images underscore my capacity to distill the very essence of a game into breathtaking snapshots, while adeptly manipulating character action, in-game lighting, and environmental transformations.
Game photography allows me to refine my expertise in photography, composition, color, lighting, cinematography, and visual storytelling, effectively applying these skills to my creative endeavors.
"Assassin's Creed Origins," developed by Ubisoft Montreal, is a 2017 action-adventure game set in sun-drenched landscapes of Ancient Egypt during the enigmatic Ptolemaic period. Players assume the role of Bayek, a Medjay, whose quest for personal revenge leads to the formation of the Assassin Brotherhood. The game features expansive open-world exploration, stealth mechanics, and RPG-style character development, immersing players in a richly detailed representation of Ancient Egypt.
The game "Assassin's Creed Origins" kindled a warm sense of familiarity, echoing my days of academic pursuit in art history over two decades prior. Once, my experiences with the enigmatic world of Egypt were limited to still images and the written word, but this game presented opportunity to immerse myself in a dynamic replica of this historic era. As I journeyed through the game, I revisited my art history books, weaving a rich tapestry of context around my virtual expedition. Ubisoft further augmented this immersive experience with "Discovery Tour - Ancient Egypt," a serene, battle-free exploration offering a detailed look into the true history of ancient Egypt.
Ubisoft's unparalleled artistry shone brightly in this game, crafting the most visually stunning and photogenic landscape I have ever had the pleasure of traversing.
