Postby KevinM » Mon Jan 24, 2011 12:40 am

Hello everyone i been at work trying to put a website together i fixed some things.
i feel its ready for CC (not about the images i plan on changing most the ones up are just to see functionality)

Ideas i have so far to add

- a Contact Form
- and a way to sell my images
- linking twitter and youtube
- get some better images together
- and make a mobi version

please take a look and tell me your thought and how i can improve the user experience thank you for your time =)

I like it a lot!
Nice, clean, and quick.

1. I find the image in the background (the road at night) a bit distracting. It might be better with just a solid color background?

2. Maybe you could add some links to the images on the front page, so it will take you right to the picture inside the album.

The only thing that is slightly unfortunate is the album thumbnails as the portrait previews crop off peoples heads. Maybe this would be less of an issue if the first shot in the sequence was the shot with the subjects face in the centre of the image (rather than near the edge where it is cropped).

Apart from that it is a very nice website, easy to navigate and very clear in its intent.

Everything on your website is working fine for my now, including the video. I like the site, it's quick and responsive. It's also very simple!

Looks great nice work!
