He told me his name..
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

..was Action Jackson.
I was on a portrait assignment shooting a young lady named Celeste when this gentleman sat down to observe. He first asked if she (Celeste) was going to be putting on a show (She did look like the lead singer of a punk rock band.). I said no, and explained that we were taking photographs for her modeling portfolio. I showed him a few of the shots we had captured on my camera's LCD and he was impressed. Knowing that he liked what he saw, I asked if I could shoot his portrait. He kindly agreed. I introduced myself and asked for his name. He paused, thought for a minute, replied with "Action Jackson" and we shook hands. I was pretty sure that wasn't his name, but, I liked what he had come up with. I only took three frames, I knew I had gotten the shot (Once you've got it, you've got it. No need to keep shooting.). Action was very relaxed in front of the camera and his eye contact was magnificent. Action had confidence, dressed neatly and was well mannered. I thanked him for the opportunity to take his photograph and shook his hand one more time. He said I should get back to work and went on his way.. Thank you Action Jackson.
