Lovely work Debbie. πŸ€“πŸ‘πŸ». Nice job.

Hey guys. Josh here. We're switching things up a bit today. There are technical troubles with the tag so instead let's do our "Comment to participate" model. Like Jenny did, just leave us a comment letting us know you submitted to today's theme.
.
Today we're looking for "Slideshows". Show us a story or artistic piece, consisting of up to 10 shots, submitted using Instagram's new slideshow feature.
.
Loving your slideshows so far guys. Keep em coming. - Josh.
.
*Note to the editors. No worries if you want to sit this one out today.

"I posted a few from my hotel room in Atlanta. My husband is attending a conference and I was going to use the day to write, but taking photos for @jjcommunity seemed like a nice way to procrastinate!" - @jennydunnpray.

Hi guys. Josh here. Sorry I'm running late with the theme. I love the new ability to add more than one image to an IG post! Today let's use this new slideshow feature in the forum. Put together a group of up to ten images that tell either a literal or a visual story. Tag your slideshow to #jj_forum_1851 .
.
I'm calling this slideshow "Kevin and I in Ireland". Catchy right. Hehehe. πŸ€“πŸ‘πŸ». About half the images are Kevin's, including the amazing fisherman portrait. The other half are mine.
.
We shot these on the last day of our trip, on a back roads tour with Brian from @selectireland, @croninscoaches and @specializedtravelservices. Speaking of @selectireland, our hotel company sponsor for the trip, they treated us so well at the @talbotstillorgan. Great staff and one of the most comfortable rooms I've stayed in for a while. Highly recommended. I put some shots up on the last slide.
.
So let's get started with the forum. What is your slideshow about? Mines pretty straight forward, but maybe yours will be more artsy? Who's going to do a photo essay all about their kitchen utensils? That's one I'd scroll through for sure. πŸ˜‰.
.
As we've seen in the editor's grids, there is something special about a deliberately chosen group of images. Let's work on that together today. Our theme in the forum is "Slideshows"and our tag is #jj_forum_1851 .
.

Back in the day, if you wanted to see how a magazine got made, you'd look at the editor's light box. The light box was the place the magazine editors viewed the slides of their favorite shots and decided which pictures made the final cut.
.
Did you know that you can look at the #JJ Community light box? Just search for the day's hashtag and substitute the word "featured" for "forum". I think of that tag as our virtual light box here at #JJ .
.
Yesterday's theme was reflections and the @jj_editor's added over 250 of their favorite shots to the #jj_featured_1850 gallery for Kevin and I to review. These are some of my favorites.
.
Make sure you check the "light box" everyday. And while you're there, thank the editors for me, for all the time and effort they put into helping us make the world a more creative and connected place.

Hey guys. Josh here, home in Atlanta. I'll be back in under an hour with our next new theme. It's gonna be a first. I think you'll like what I've got planned.

Good morning guys. Josh here, posting from Heathrow airport today. Kevin and I are flying back from Dublin.
.
There is a reason why puddles and mirrors are practically a staple on Instagram. Reflections are kind of magic. Look long enough into them and you can find a whole other, backwards, dimension. The creative possibilities are literally endless.
.
Let's go that way today. "With Reflection" is our challenge and our tag is #jj_forum_1850 .
.
Big congrats to @jmccullough for inspiring today's theme and thanks to @jj_editor_intothevoid for the assist.

#JJ_EXPLAINED- .
.
Are you new to the community? It's not as confusing as it seems at first. :-). Here's the deal.
.
Sometimes it can be hard to get your pictures seen and aren't we all looking for inspiring photographers to follow. That's why I created the forum 5 years ago. It's a place to come together for inspiration and encouragement.
.
Every morning, NYC time, we make a post announcing our new theme and tag. Your job is to tag images that fit the theme. You can use shots you have already posted but we really love to see the theme inspire you to find new shots. The @jj_editors, @kevinkuster and I scour the tag and repost our favorite submissions through out the day. Over half a million people might see your pic! Pretty cool stuff.
.
We are ALL about keeping things simple, but in the spirit of our motto, "Create to connect", we ask that you follow our only "rule". We call it the 1-2-3 rule. For every 1 image you tag, comment on 2 in the tag and like 3 others.
.
Glad you're here. Can't wait to see your shots. Speak up if you have questions or comments. We like to think this is the friendliest place on the internet. :-).

Back in a bit with a new theme. Our theme yesterday was "Soft" and our tag #jj_forum_1849 . This lovely image was submitted by @omerika and featured by @jj_editor_georgiak . Love the sexy soft vibe here. πŸ€“πŸ‘πŸ» - Josh.
.

Our theme is "Soft" and our tag #jj_forum_1849 . This exceptionally ethereal image was submitted by @trumaebelle and featured by @jj_editor_theresa . Love the warm light behind. πŸ€“πŸ‘πŸ» - Josh.
.

#jj_forum_1849 . Today was what they call a "soft day" here in Ireland. You hear that term a lot. That means there was a light rain, that is almost more a mist, that seems to linger in the air.
.
It rains a lot in Ireland. πŸ˜‰πŸ€. But it's very pretty too. I grabbed this shot with my iPhone 7 plus. Such a good camera.
.
Thank you to Brian and @selectireland for showing us around today. Select hotels has been such a gracious and accommodating host during our entire week. Today we took a day trip by car, a bit north of Dublin. Kevin and I had a great time. I have a feeling I'm going to hear about Saint Kevin's Church in Glendalough for a while. Hahahaha. πŸ˜‰ - Josh.

Our theme today is "Soft" and our tag #jj_forum_1849 . This lovely gentle image was submitted by @the_cheshire_ and featured by @jj_editor_rdizzle618 . Love the edit. πŸ€“πŸ‘πŸ» - Josh.
