    • Purpose: Photo will be published in the printed IBLP Character Curriculum.
    • Request: I am looking for a picture of a roller compactor construction machine (I think that’s what it is called). Something big, scary, pushy, contentious. Something that would flatten anything in it’s path. The caption under the picture will be something like, “A persuasive person does not force his opinion or ‘run over’ people to prove his point.” If you think of another picture that would illustrate this concept other than a roller compactor, feel free to share. I’m open to ideas!
    • Specifics: I can’t choose a picture that would quickly date our curriculum….clothing styles and haircuts date a picture faster than anything else!
    • Orientation: Vertical pictures are preferred.
    • Image specs: At least 2000 pixels longest edge.
    • How to Submit:
    1) Upload originals or DNGs to this link.
    2) Attach JPGs less than 8MB in size in reply to this topic (especially if you would like them to be critiqued).
    • Remuneration: Lenspiration members will be awarded $15/submission if chosen.
    • Terms: By submitting your photo(s) for this assignment, you agree to the terms outlined in the STS Photo Assignment Agreement.
    • Deadline: Midnight Friday, February 1, 2019, or until this topic is no longer highlighted in yellow.

    Well, this is certainly an interesting request! Does anyone know if any special permissions are required to photograph construction equipment?

    I have some pictures I took awhile ago of excavation since my brother worked with an excavation company. Would an excavator work?
    If it might work, I’ll check and see what I have if there are any good quality photos!!

    @hannahm, if you think the angle or perspective or whatever gives the impression of “forcing an opinion or ‘running over’ people to prove a point,” then that would be great to submit!


    Lydia Bennett

    Since there’s not construction equipment readily available to me and I didn’t have the chance to go and find some, I thought I’d try out the “other ideas” option. 🙂 A rolling pin in action seemed like it could illustrate the concept, so here’s what I got.


    James Staddon

    Wow, that’s so creative @bennett-family!



    Yes, Lydia gets the creativity award! I so appreciate people who think outside the box and find a different way to illustrate the same concept. For this one, the vote was to go with the machine roller compactor machine but thank you so much for participating.

    Looking forward to next time,

    Thank you @estherstaddon for giving us a chance!

    And since none of our submissions were chosen, we’ll have to put them to good use somewhere else! Let’s discuss the next step in how to get your photos published elsewhere in tonight’s webinar, https://www.lenspiration.com/photo-critique-with-lenspiration-feb-12/

    In case anyone missed it, here’s the replay link to last nights webinar where we critiqued the submission for this assignment! https://www.lenspiration.com/webinar021219
