Learn to Shoot the Assignment
Browsing through the Christian Law Association’s Instagram feed is a feast of scenic inspiration! I love the beautiful photos they choose. It’s the kind of collection that makes me think, “I wish one of my photos could be on there. . . .” Well, it can be! If you...
Assignment Deadline: September 23, 2023
Who We’re Shooting for
What They Need
Photos for their social media (usually paired with a Bible verse), or for their monthly newsletter the Legal Alert.
The Christian Law Association is a legal based ministry who supports people in regards to their religious freedoms. The photos they use most are nature or scenery photos. Anything with a Bible, American flag, or cross will work well for them. Every photo needs negative space so there is room to place a Bible verse.
Special Instructions: CLA is looking for pictures without people or animals, preferably. Again, bonus points if there is a Bible, American flag, or cross in the photo somewhere (or even all three)! If using a flag to illustrate the concept of freedom, it needs to be an American flag, as CLA is based in the US and that would make the most sense to its American audience. Photos could be still life arrangements or epic landscapes. Think "America the Beautiful", or "God Bless America". They look forward to seeing the world through your ideas!
Orientation: Every photo on their social media will be cropped into square orientation, but any orientation is welcome just in case they use it in their newsletter.
Photo Specs: A web optimized photo, .jpeg formats are preferred, edit your photo however you like.
Assignment Awards: You must be a Lenspiration member to receive an award. Each winner will receive a $25 cash prize and a book written by the founder of Christian Law Association, Dr. David Gibbs Jr., called "Understanding the Constitution".
