A sharp reader (hat tip, BG) notices that Greater Vision seems to have one photograph they really like with Jacob Kitson. Yes, one.

In the August Singing News, Greater Vision’s full-page ad (page 17) says “Greater Vision Welcomes Jacob Kitson.” Rodney Griffin, Gerald Wolfe, and Jacob Kitson pose in front of a tan / earth tones background, wearing maroon / red ties.

In the September and October issues, GV’s full-page ad (page 17 both times) announces the release of Not Alone. The CD cover shows Rodney, Gerald, and Jacob posing in front of a lime green background of two hands holding each other. They’re wearing dark green ties with a strangely familiar pattern…

In the November issue, GV’s full page ad (again page 17) has Rodney, Gerald, and Jacob posing in front of a maroon background. Though the picture has been brightened a little, those maroon / red ties look strangely familiar…

In the December issue, GV’s full page ad (page 17) wishes readers a “Merry Christmas from Greater Vision.” Greater Vision poses in front of a waterfall with a snowflake background. Rodney, Gerald, and Jacob wear blue ties, with a strangely familiar pattern…

But something doesn’t look quite right in the December photo. The yellowish tint and the lighting both don’t fit the backdrop.

It turns out that, by all appearances, Greater Vision has used the same photo for the last few months, just pasting the group members in front of different backdrops and digitally altering the tie colors.

It’s quite the Photoshop, and apparently done well enough that it took months for a sharp reader to catch on. Kudos to whoever does Greater Vision’s graphic design…sort of.
