On Assignment: Party Backgrounds!

When I first found out what the theme would be for the photo assignment we would be shooting for Homeschool Summits in April, I got a wild idea in my head for what to photograph. However, I had a very difficult time figuring out how I would actually go about shooting...

Assignment Deadline: April 27, 2024








Who We’re Shooting for

What They Need

Creative, colorful background or texture photos that speak "Party!"


If you take a look at Homeschool Summit's social media, they do not use very many photos. However, if they had amazing background texture photos to use for various things they announce (like Facebook parties or this free Relational Summit event), then they may be a whole lot more likely to use photos to liven up their social media presence.


Special Instructions: While appearing lively and fun, photos should be suitable for having lots of text added. Flat-lay style photos should frame large portions of empty space. Texture style photos should be low enough contrast that it doesn't interfere with overlaid text. Do not showcase any inference to birthday, alcohol, or sensuality.

Orientation: Any orientation, though most likely will be cropped square.

Photo Specs: High quality. Minimum 2000px longest edge. Edit tastefully.

Assignment Awards: The photographer whose photo is chosen as the winner of this assignment will receive one free month of Lenspiration membership. There will be one winner. However, Homeschool Summits reserves the right to use any of the photo submissions for future projects.
