Hey everyone, here’s another shooting opportunity!
Have you ever heard the hymn, Blessed Be The Name? Can you go out and photograph (or find from your portfolio) a picture that illustrates it? The overarching message of the hymn is “majesty supreme”. Reply to this topic with your submissions!
• Requester: IBLP Family Conferences
• Purpose: To be used as a background image for a powerpoint for the hymn, Blessed Be The Name (lyrics)
• Request: A picture that you think illustrates this hymn. The image needs to portray the idea of looking up, in complete awe and exultation of God’s majesty. Ideas could include a bright sunset, a dramatic cloudscape, or a stunning mountain landscape. Since this will be used as a background image, keep it simple. I suggest the sky be the main part of the image with a small section of horizon visible at the bottom of the frame.
• Image Specs: Pictures must be at least 3000 pixels longest edge. Edit however you like. Please no watermarks.
• How to Submit: Attach JPGs less than 2MB in size in reply to this topic. (Learn to downsize JPGs appropriately in this video.)
• Remuneration: Your submissions are a tangible gift to a non-profit, Christian ministry. A real opportunity to shoot to serve.
• Terms: Chosen submissions will be used as if it was purchased under a Royalty Free license. You continue to retain full rights to your image.
• Deadline: Midnight Saturday, December 2, 2017 (postponed from November 26)

Here’s one I got with my drone. Do you think this would work?

Very nice, @rmadaris. Perfect perspective. It’s wide enough that it could be cropped to have the text in the center without high-contrast areas interfering. If you happen to have any other unique angles from that same flight, feel free to submit those as well.November 21, 2017 at 10:17 am #26924
@jamesstaddon, I don’t have another angle of the same mountain, but I have one from the same flight. Here it is…November 22, 2017 at 4:54 pm #26970November 25, 2017 at 4:12 pm #26996

I don’t think too contrasty. Lots of texture, yes, but not stark contrasts between dark and light in the center of the frame.November 29, 2017 at 5:15 pm #27096
Ok, that’s good @jamesstaddon!
Oops, I just realised that I accidentally have a watermark on the images. I was fiddling around trying to make one the other day and as an experiment and I tried it on a photo. I forgot to uncheck the watermark box in the export settings in Lightroom! 🙂 Anyway here they are again without the watermark.
P.S. That watermark is definitely not my finished one. 😀November 30, 2017 at 8:51 pm #27124November 30, 2017 at 9:11 pm #27127November 30, 2017 at 9:15 pm #27130November 30, 2017 at 9:16 pm #27133December 4, 2017 at 8:37 am #27402
I will announce the winner in the next webinar (December 12 at 7pm ET), and explain why I chose the one I did. I’ll also make a surprise announcement about my thoughts on some of the other submissions which you’ll have to watch the webinar to find out what I mean. 🙂
So, how do you watch the webinar?
Webinars are normally $19, but here is how you can attend for free:
1) either join PRO (PRO members can register for free right now right here)
2) or, make sure you are subscribed to “Photo Assignments” at http://www.lenspiration.com/subscribe. At any point between now and before the webinar starts, I’ll send subscribers a secret, free registration link. Keep a sharp eye on your email, and hopefully, I’ll see you at the webinar!
