Writer. Blogger. Jazz lover. Image maker.

Hi! My long-time Web name is Junsjazz or JJ. This is a personal showcase of images and an online portal for learning the many aspects of photography. I will not teach here; I am just an avid photography enthusiast. But I will share in this blog all the interesting and informative photography-related articles I have come across on the Internet. We will not touch on the technical aspects of photography, we’ll leave those to professionals. Here we tackle creativity, aesthetics, composition, fundamentals, visual elements – essentially the photographer’s “vision” and the art of “seeing.” We will also recall the words and wisdom of masters and experts from their quotes, books, lectures and articles. Through these, we will all learn and enjoy photography.

Thank you for visiting! Keep on clicking!

  2. Hello, Junsjazz! I clicked the link to your site from Otto Von Munchow’s blog. Your photos are so vibrant and alive. But what caught my attention is your jazz selection. You seem like “an old soul.” Your selected favorites are eclectic all right but Seawind? And Joyce Cooling? The Koz? Jarreau, Deodato, Austin, Bensin, Lewis, and Mangione are from my high school and college days! I have had the privilege to see some if them live over the years. And they have been such fun!

    Keep on clicking and tapping your feet. Looks great!

      Hi there jazz sis! Old school jazz guy here, but also appreciates the newer breed and neo urban jazz from the likes of Marion Meadows, Norman Brown, Euge Groove and many others. Thanks for visiting! Wonderful family you have, and boy what a huge dog you got there!:-)

      Thanks very much Xavi! but as I said to Monika who also nominated me with the same award, its just been two months that I have been blogging here and I think I haven’t yet accomplished that much. I bask in the appreciation, comments and likes of all my blogger friends here and these are more than awards for me. Thanks again! and congrats on your award, you deserve it.

  16. Hi JJ
    thanks a lot for your offer to participate in your magazine, I am very happy for it. I love your photos and also your art&visions blog with pictures (the flowers are great!). I do know your magazine, it’s great :-).
    I would love to participate, not sure, if my shots are good enough for it, but it’s up to you to decide. What will be the topic?

      Welcome on board Issue #6 Katerina! Oh you’re so humble, you’ve got lots of great travel and destination pics. Readers will get to see Prague and other places in Europe. Don’t you worry about anything (i just waited for your go signal), its my task to pick out 5 to 6 of the best photos in your blog (that’s quite a task with so many wonderful pics). What i would request is a short write up or info (4 to 5 sentences) about yourself and what you look out for when taking pictures. Thats it. Kindly send me the info at jazzmanjun@gmail.com. Lots of thanks Katy. Best regards!~JJ
