Good Evening Lenspiration!
This week, we need photos that fit Romans 5:7-8:
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Your submitted photos will be used as a background to the verse as part of our VersePics Ministry. I can’t nail down just one idea for photos that I would like, so I want you to come up with a concept or shot that you think pictures this verse. Try to wow me! 😉
Here’s the challenge: As a fellow photographer, I love getting technical as to HOW you took a particular shot, and how we could do it better, but as a designer, I care about WHY. Why did you choose to shoot that particular subject? What is the meaning behind the photo? With every submission that you put in the DFR or post here on the forums, try and explain in a few words why you took that shot, and why you feel that it fits Romans 5:7-8.
Full details on submission rules, the RAW submission link (the DFR), what the images will be used for, and everything else will be found here.
Thank you for your support as we seek to follow God’s will in the ministry he has given to us!

As a recap:
Request: A photo to backdrop Romans 5:7-8
Photo ideas: Up the the photographer’s discretion
Deadline: October 6th at MidnightOctober 2, 2017 at 10:46 am #26083James StaddonKeymaster
Here’s a JPG preview of the RAW submission I sent via your DFR link, @bensharpeningcharacter!
As I was thinking about this verse, this is the picture that came to mind. Perhaps it’s because the clouds look almost “bloody”, and the barrenness of the mountains make me almost wonder why God would spread such a beautiful sunset over such a desolate landscape, where almost no one would see it. While we were yet destitute and completely oblivious and uncaring of God’s goodness, He sent Christ to die for us and make a way of salvation from sin and relationship with Him possible.

Is there a part you would want highlighted more than others (which part of the verses)
Thanks.October 2, 2017 at 8:08 pm #26107
There isn’t a single thought in that verse that isn’t awesome, so I can’t really ask anyone to focus on just one aspect, so I’ll leave you to decide which topic to tackle. However, I will be talking about the love that God gives to sinners on the podcast, so you could takle that if you want to focus on something in paticular.
Looks cool James!October 3, 2017 at 8:23 pm #26118PeanutParticipant
I do not have a Paypal account! So what happens if my photo is chosen?October 3, 2017 at 9:21 pm #26119
@peanut Well, I’d have to talk to James about that! You are right about needing to have a PayPal account with our current setup, but just to mention it here, only Pro members recieve some compensation if their submission is chosen. All chosen submissions will get the photographers name on the VersePic though! I hoped this helped, and I look forward to seeing your submissions!October 4, 2017 at 1:54 pm #26124James StaddonKeymaster
Good question @peanut! Like @bensharpeningcharacter said, only PRO members are eligible to be paid for Sharpening Character VPOs. Regardless, if there’s someone who doesn’t have a PayPal account, then Lenspiration will contact them via the email address associated with your Lenspiration account and inquire as the to the best way to send them the payment. Usually, we are still able to use PayPal since it’s easy for a recipient to set up a PayPal account to receive the payment.October 4, 2017 at 2:01 pm #26125
Good to know! I’ll go ahead and add that information to the VPO FAQ for future reference!October 5, 2017 at 11:40 am #26139
Thanks for the two photos @elianafranzenburg! I really appreciate your taking some time to plan these out and photograph them!
You photographed a really cool and interesting concept, but there is one problem that prevents me from using the photos. Essentially, while your exposure is really low (and of course it is a night shot!), the bright white of the light-cross in the direct center of the photo means I would have to darken it even more in order to get text to show up over it, and at that point, you wouldn’t be able to see anything else in the photo.
I’d love to ask how you got it all to work with so little blur on the person to the left though! How long a shutter speed were you using? Were you using LED’s for the cross?October 5, 2017 at 11:49 am #26143
Here are JPEG versions of the photos I submitted to the DFR link
I took the photos at 10:00 at night with my younger sister’s help, I used a flashlight for the cross and for the lighting.
I tried to picture verse 8 “That while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” with the cross the person kneeling then the person standing it sort of showed that we were sinners but God sent his son to die for us so that we are without sin.October 5, 2017 at 2:25 pm #26146
Ben, I used a technique called painting with light. The two people in the picture is my sister I had her kneel then flashed a light on her, turned the light off had her stand up and flashed the light on her again. The shutter was open for 58 seconds.October 5, 2017 at 6:15 pm #26163AbbyParticipantOctober 5, 2017 at 11:29 pm #26168Caitlin ComptonParticipantOctober 5, 2017 at 11:31 pm #26170Caitlin ComptonParticipant
