The #JJ Community  Our motto is "Create To Connect." Daily IG hashtag contests since 2010. Remember your "1-2-3". @JoshJohnson Founder and @KevinKuster CEO. Welcome!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

My buddy and business partner @kevinkuster. Five years ago I called him from my daughter's softball practice and asked him to help me with this new #JJ thing I was doing. We had exchanged maybe two emails. Gutsy but one of the best decisions I've ever made.
.
Another great decision was to bite the bullet and upgrade to my iPhone 7 plus. Can you believe this headshot is an iPhone shot, edited with just an Instagram filter? So cool. The 7 pluses' new portrait mode isn't perfect but, when it gets it right, it's so cool. Shallow depth of field use to be the one thing our slrs still had over our phones. The game really is changing.
.
Let's do a "Headshot& #34; theme today.
.
From Wikipedia: "A head shot or headshot is a specific type of portrait (usually a photograph) that realistically demonstrates a person's appearance. Head shots are typically medium close-up (MCU) photographs which show the top of the shoulders up to above the head. In a typical head shot the eyes will be in the top, middle half of the photo according to the rule of thirds" .
.
Our tag today is #jj_forum_1857 . Don't forget your 1-2-3. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป - Josh.

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 always looking for inspiring photographers to follow? That's why I created the forum over 6 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& #34; . We call it the 1-2-3 rule. For every 1 image you tag, comment on 2 in the tag and like 3 others.
.
Thanks for joining in!

@hayzen11 from Belarus, based in SF, submitted this shot and it caught @jj_editor_jnanas eye, in Athens Greece. That's called #JJ global origami. We pull the corners of the world together every day. ๐Ÿ˜‰.

It's pronounced "crack& #34; and it means, having a great time together. So don't freak out if an Irish person tells you they "had a good craic" with their friends over the weekend. They're not talking about high quality elicit substances. ๐Ÿ˜‚.
.
Hi everyone. Josh here. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿค“ So, now that we got that out of the way, we had a GREAT craic the other day on our first of two #JJ Mystery Train Photowalks! Photographic evidence available here โžก๏ธ #MysteryTrain1 . 400 people signed up for a train trip photo excursion without knowing the destination.
.
@IrishRail sent us to Galway. They gave us our own train for the day! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Yep. I still can't believe that happened. It was SOOOO cool. On the way out there, Kevin and I walked car to car and talked about #JJ , photo tips and Ireland with everyone.
.
During the Photowalk in Galaway, we asked folks to hashtag their pictures to #mysterytrain1 . Its an awesome gallery. It's not only a great recap of our day, the hashtag was also how our new friends submitted to win prizes from both @selectireland and @Irishrail.
.
Big congrats to @acupoflala. Laura-Jane took home prize 1 with her fun umbrella jump. A weekend in theย @killarney_riverside_hotelย from @selectireland and train travel and additional Explorer passes from @Irishrail.
.
Congrats as well to @nurietamomento. Nuria's church shot was selected by the sponsors to win a weekend in the @talbotwexford hotel from @selectireland and train travel and additional Explorer passes from @Irishrail.
.
Thank you again to our event sponsors: @Irishrail, @selectireland and #StPatricksFest Dublin. And of course, thank you so much to everyone who showed up for for the craic ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ€.
