Tonight in the forum, #jj_forum_0365, we're asking you to answer one simple question. "What inspires you?". Tag a picture and leave us at least one sentence below the image you're submitting. I've answered a couple times but here's another. "Sometimes I just don't know where inspiration comes from. A light bulb just goes off"
  • Okay :D

  • @joshjohnson ... Thanks for clarifying, was wondering if I read the forum instructions wrong ~ im a chatterbox - in real life AND with my fingers on my phone 👐 so I put "deep thoughts" of inspiration under my posted pictures but when going back to see what others inspirations were didn't find many quotes & thought, here I go again ... Talk Talk Talk when all I had to do was post ... Phew 😉👍

  • Love this one!  

  • I had to go with the big city 🏢 ❕

  • "LIGHTBULB!"- Despicable Me

  • My biggest inspiration to photograph would have to be... Being able to portray color and detail in a fun and interesting way. I live abstracts and rusty/urban shots. But i also love nature and architecture. But in all those styles, color and details inspire me the most. Thanks for making me think about that one :)

  • Grandpa? Is that you??!

  • @pictouch @juliebean420 now take a pic to represent that, and tag it! :)

  • ohflan 5y ago

    @wazieeffinbaby haha! Thought the same!! 💡😂

  • mrsth 5y ago

    💜

  • When I'm in a brain freeze with no new basket ideas coming, handling a new color often suggests the next design ...

  • In fact, there's already a photo in tonight's forum in black with a light bulb. Sorry telling this Josh, but you haven't been the first 😜😉 do you want me to look for it and post it?

  • I love being inspired and don't always question where it comes from. I am curious, constantly aware of lines, color, mood, light...I enjoy it when it's there and accept the challenge to find it when it's not. Thanks for another interesting/inspiring challenge. 😊

  • Longboarding:)

  • Everything touch my heart and I'd like to share with the world

  • Funny I was pondering this tonight as I'm a hermit of sorts it seems that my brain is scrambling out of boredom for outlet's be it!

  • @ohemg87 ooh I'm going to just wanted to share that here as well.. I'm actually working on it right now. Thanks :)

  • Cool

  • @ohflan LOL! I love that movie.

  • This is a great photo made me laugh out loud.

  • I look like you!

  • @estelapadilha I should be so lucky.

  • Love the concept behind the picture.. Lol

  • @ohemg87 oh sure! Done things came up so i got sidetracked, but I'll get to it as soon as in done :)

  • Can see the brain at work

  • Posted a few shots, hope i get chosen! But just a question, do editors really scroll down to look at every shot in the forum?

  • Hahahaa nice!!!

  • they sure do their best @joonweh ! i know I start going through the forum's early in the morning, when Josh first posts them, and continue to look. between all 160 of us, I'm sure they're all getting looked at, one way or another. ;)

  • Thanks for the clarification! =) really hope mine get chosen, mine was posted pretty early and is already down in the last few shot in the forum... Hopefully someone notices! Thanks for the heads up! @jj_editor_ohemg87

  • I noticed! Nice stuff @joonweh !

  • @imagenary thank you so much my friend! =) really appreciate your attention, means alot!

  • macroe 5y ago

    Checa este forum @ele_nano

  • Nature inspires me. I love being around it, whether in the everglades or at the beach. It is breathtaking. Sunrises and sunsets are very inspiring and so beautiful to see.

  • Nicee one will give it a shot 😊👍

  • Hey Josh! While thinking about a sentence for my Best Last Week entry as contributor (@mancinivt) I had this idea and decided to come here to suggest you guys. What about a future forum's theme: "Your best shot's title". The job would be to select just one of our favorite shots and give it a title that express its mood. I don't know if it would work out, but worth the suggestion! =)

  • Ha ha

  • Hey Josh! What are the steps to take when someone is stealing pics?? It just happened to me...

  • ongaku 5y ago

    @kjjohnson I'm sorry that happend to you man... Start putting water marks with your name or a logo. That should help... I'll pray about it too

  • @ongaku It's odd because I only noticed it because the guy or whoever started following me and I went to check out his feed. Then I saw that one of my older pics was the last one posted...

  • @kjjohnson it happened to me like that too. I even asked her many times nicely to remove it. Actually several times over a couple of days. Then she blocked me and it remained. I then regrettably had to report her. But it is a kind of flattery 😉 good luck.

  • @kjjohnson and unless they invent an app for photographers where your watermark is between the layers of the photo and not just on top of it..it's so easily removed that its a waste of time really. If someone decides to nick your photo, they're going to do it.

  • Hi @joshjohnson love the forum can't get enough! Was just wondering the other day you started following me and I thought hold on a second, this must be a mistake! The next day you unfollowed, I was most disappointed😔

Today’s theme is half face. They say each person has a totally unique look to each side of their face. Let’s show only one side of each face shot you submit. Hopefully it the “best side” of your subject. Start submitting you half face shots now and I will be back to highlight later. This great shot was submitted yesterday by @sarahstephensphotography and located by @jj_editor_elkunia.
