Following on from the last post, or as you may be reading them, the next post, photographers seem to end up with the boring end of the creative deal. I understand that my photographs need to stand out and make an impression, but I personally feel that my work doesn’t sit well on a bright white background. This is why my website is a little different from most photography websites, just because I’m a photographer doesn’t mean I’m going to have a website that doesn’t show off my skills, I can use dreamweaver with a small amount of skill, I’ve made a website.
I have kept everything other than my photographs greyscale because this way it still has an element of excitement. I’ve also used my handwriting to make the headers/titles/covers because I think that it gives the website a warmer feeling.
This is the top left hand side of my homepage, I’m going to change the homepage every couple of months to keep the people interested, I also want it to be an image that interests people and the colours in this image are for me quite striking against the grey background.
This is from my portfolio page again I have used my handwriting here which I think helps the work, which is a part me, stay close to me and not become some obscurity on the internet.
I have also assisted in the building of a website for my degree show I will talk about that briefly at a later date.
