In the last couple of weeks I’ve moved the site to a new host, updated the theme and put a lot of time into other behind the scenes work. I’m finally satisfied that most of the site is working as it should be and looking acceptable, so it’s time to get back to producing content.
Yesterday I spent the morning working in Lightroom figuring out how to make a functional and aesthetically pleasing custom gallery. The result is the first screenshot gallery of the games I play, in this case the recently released Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I take screenshots every 10 seconds while playing and then scan through them later for the better captures. The link to the list of galleries (presently just this one) is available through the top-menu, or just click to go straight through to the Shadow of Mordor gallery.
I chose Shadow of Mordor for the first gallery since I haven’t played it a lot yet so there aren’t a ton of screenshots for me to process before posting a gallery and, as you can see, it is a rather beautifully realised vision of Tolkien’s world and a fine example of the fidelity of contemporary real-time computer graphics. The shots are captured at 3840×2160 (4K) and then reduced somewhat to make viewing more practical. I do keep the original files in local storage however and could find and post individual shots at 4K resolution if requested.
