I'm 16, and I have a passion for graphic design, photo-editing, and photography, though I'm still very much an amuetur photographer! The Lord has blessed me with the ability to be the VersePics and R&D Director for The Sharpening Character Podcast, and I love being a part of this special ministry to young men!
On one hand I do agree with you Austin. When we meld images together, we should say that it is a digital composite, because it is no longer a “natural” image. For instance, I looked at your goldfinch image without knowing it was the digital composite (short term memory issues…), and it instantly screamed CGI to me. That has more to do with the…[Read more]
Interesting thoughts Dan. I never really thought how choosing your angle and composition “manipulates” the end photo…
One area of manipulation that I think would be a good thing to discuss is Portrait manipulation. Everyone wants a flattering photo of themselves taken on their “good side”, but how comfortable should we be with going in and…[Read more]
I was taking a look at some photos from a trip that I had taken this spring when I really started focusing on the editing I had done on one photo in paticular. (I’ll put the original and edited photos below) I use Affinity Photo to edit my photos, and one thing I like doing is being able to quickly hide a layer or multiple photo layers, masks, and…[Read more]
Good Evening Lenspiration!
I have to apologize for taking a while before getting back to you all on the VPO. My schedule was absolutely going nuts and things got really busy fast… Before we jump into any critique though, I’ll show you the final VersePic.
The first thing most of you will probably notice is that there isn’t a Lenspiration…[Read more]
Thank you all for submitting photos! I greatly enjoy having so much participation, especially on a VPO with such a short deadline!
I’m going to be working on the VP tomorrow, but I may have to wait until the end of the week before getting back to you all. We’re just starting our VBS at church and with work and school my…[Read more]
Good Evening Lenspiration!
This week, we need photos that fit Titus 3:5-6.
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Your submitted photos will be used as a background…[Read more]
Too bad I didn’t see that photo in time Kimberly! One problem that immediately jumps out at me is that you submitted a photo with a watermark. I much prefer if you submit photos without any type of destructive edits, as that makes my job a little easier!
Now to reveal the newest VersePic and the…[Read more]

Now to reveal the newest VersePic and the winner of the VPO!
You can absolutely submit as many photos as you like! Please just keep the composition simple with one subject if you are shooting indoors or in a studio environment.
Good Evening Lenspiration!
This week, we need photos to backdrop Philippians 3:13-14.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
I hope I wasn’t sounding to harsh in all of that critique!
@AbbySherlock While on the whole, as James mentioned, the shadows add to the look of the photo, I found the contrast between the light and the shadows highlighted and exaggerated by the white border caused by the glass over the clock face very distracting. I hope that’s a little…[Read more]
Good evening Lenspiration!
First off, I just want to thank both Caitlin and Abby for submitting their photos! You both submitted 5 DNG files, which I love! (DNGs are awesome…) Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use any of the photos.
Please forgive me if I sound a bit harsh with some of the critique, but these are some things that we photographers…[Read more]
And for those of you who submit photos in RAW or DNG, here’s the DFR link! https://www.dropbox.com/request/w5rf4abOpaPBxE31JuOX
Buenos días Lenspiration!
This week, we need photos that fits Acts 24:25.
And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.
Your submitted photos will be used as a background to the verse as part of our VersePics…[Read more]
As you weren’t extremely specific about a few details, I’m going to have work with what you’ve said so far and hopefully guess correctly on what you’re looking for. A quick disclaimer: I’ve never needed or used anything similar to what you are describing. I do love research though, so hopefully what I’ve discovered fits your needs.…[Read more]
And here we are again finishing up yet another VersePic Opportunity!
Before we get into the winner, I just want to say there were a lot of good submissions, with each submitter taking a slightly different approach to the requested idea, which gave me a lot stuff to choose from, which in turn creates a better VersePic! Thank you all for…[Read more]
Just wanted to post a quick update and thank our previous winner Abby Sherlock for submitting seven DNG files via the DFR! For some reason, Dropbox lets me preview RAW files and not DNG, so I’m not going to know what any of these look like until I put them in Lightroom and MaxCurve when the deadline ends here soon! Speaking of which, the deadline…[Read more]
Sorry for the delay, but Lenspiration logged me out upon opening this page no matter how many times I tried for quite a while! Its working now, thank goodness!
I’ve received a few submissions through the DFR (Dropbox File Request) link, with Hailey Crowley submitting a very interesting photo with a fantastic look at coins, or the…[Read more]
