hi @joshjohnson , so nice to see a cat photo on your feed. Cats are our passion and I love IG for sharing the work we do with our small cat charity. I know how busy you are but as a struggling UK charity we are always looking to gain more exposure. I would love it if you could take a quick look at our feed to see what you think about what we do. I am only a mere amateur photographer but I love taking photo's and regularly feel that I pick up some great tips from your feed. Many thanks 🐱.
That's a solid stretch right there
I swear in 1-2-3ing
Impossible to resist a like
i'm IN LOVE with this
@joshjohnson I loooooove this tabbies and I loooove this photo!
Ok. @joshjohnson You need a new tag. Maybe #willtherealjjpleasestandup. There are way too many stupid shots of pimply faced teenagers on your #jj tag. Plus, last straw for me: a photo of Justin Bieber. Aaaahhhh!!!!!!'
@scattycarrot I concur!
I love these forums. No matter how good a photo I think I've taken, I'll submit it, then have a wander around the forum and find some blimmin AMAZING shots! It's inspirational. Well done @joshjohnson for getting people to share the great stuff in 1 spot. Thanks, Katie.
@joshjohnson hi Josh, I just joined the jj community and think what you do is wonderful! I love the friends I've made through pictures and look forward to making more. Thanks for providing a place for everyone to share! 💛
Thank you sooooo much guys! This is a honor to be in the feature of @jj profile! thank you for all the likes to @suessstoff & my bengalcats 😊👍
@schoscho -adorable!!!! Hugs -congrats too !
Awww adorable :3
The next forum should be things in pairs of three. Id like to see what everyone comes up with !
@joshjohnson @kevinkuster I love the the themes and the challenge it gives me to take current, fresh pictures but, I have become increasingly frustrated in the way posting is being run. I understand that the community is supposed to be a free form space with no limitations that encourages creativity but, when looking through the daily feeds and seeing the same pictures from the same people posted over and over and over again, it starts to feel stale and each picture starts to look like the one before it. Fresh ideas and fresh perspectives means posting fresh work not regurgitating the same work a million times in the hopes of being recognized. Somehow the directions to post a FEW images has turned into post every image you've ever taken that fits today's theme. It makes for a boring feed and I know that's not what any of us want. I understand I'm not special and I know I'm just one of thousands but as a participating member of the community I feel like my opinion should be considered without the fear of being bashed for speaking my mind. I'm not putting down anyone's hard work. There have been incredible images posted and Josh and the editors have been working their tails off for us. I know everyone involved wants this to be the best community it can be. I love the spirit of the idea, I love the challenges and I've enjoyed the themes but, I find, scrolling through the feeds of the days with no posting limits or specific posting requirements frustrating and uninspiring. I don't know what needs to be done to fix it or if I'm a lone voice wailing in the wilderness. What I do know is that my growing frustration is starting to make me question my continued involvement in the community and that makes me really unhappy!!
@bethlehem2 Thank you so much for speaking up and doing it so respectfully. I'm gonna talk about it with Kevin and Emily today and we'll make a game plan. Probably a post to determine if your frustration is widespread. Thanks again for being bold and speaking your mind respectfully. I really appreciate it.
@joshjohnson @kevinkuster -- I don't shoot/edit many black and white photos but I decided to today, thanks to you. I love color and doing as much as I can with it. But today, instead of just going through my feed to tag the same black and white images as I a have before, (long before reading @bethlehem2 's post) I was inspired by your Wednesday b/w forum to see in black and white (and 18 percent gray ;) today. So I found as much as I could to shoot and edit in BW today. Thanks for the inspiration. Whether or not any of the editors select any of my photos I'm very happy with them. Thanks again!
@bethlehem2 @joshjohnson @kevinkusterI suspect this is a growth thing. When I first started interacting here I tagged virtually everything in my gallery each time and then had to spend a few hours liking and commentingin order to catch up with myself!Now however if I run into an image that already has previously used forum tags on it I'll stop. And I'm also tending to remember when I've submitted images before. Now that I've got all of that out of my system – it's easier just to post the new stuff. :-)
If anyone who replied to my comment from last night reads this, let me say the following. I thank you for even reading what I writers, for responding, and many for going through my feed and liking my photos. And thanks to those who followed. I can't see the notifications anymore and I don't see the comments on this thread. Just know that I am happy to know that I am not alone. Which I really felt like I was. Thanks Josh @joshjohnson for allowing me to open up. I'm still kind of waiting for your response but I understand your a busy bee. Much love to all. ❤😘
What I *wrote
@joshjohnson I just wanted to say thank you for getting back to me regarding my comment. I have to admit I was a little nervous about leaving it. I'd be interested to find out what other people think. Again, thank you for taking to read and consider my comment.
