Life Is Full Of Changes

We all go through lots of changes in our lives. Some more difficult to handle than others. So many people have gone through unwanted and unexpected changes due to our economy. Loss of jobs, homes. The paper I have worked for the past 18 months was bought by Tribble Newspapers. The good folks at Tribble decided that they no longer needed my services.

Since April my duties and pay had changed about four times. The last photo I did for the paper was Peach County's Special Olympics April 23. Since then I had been doing only layout. I need to be shooting pictures. Anyway, when last Tuesday rolled around, I was ready to be gone.

I have been working on a new website for the past few weeks. My old site was mostly photojournalism. Well, I guess it was about all photojournalism. It was time to feature weddings and portraits. These are a few of the probably too many images on the new site.
Top and bottom are from the same wedding, the center is from a fashion shoot.

Take a look at the site, and let me know what you think.

Ok Danny, I have several thoughts about your new site. First of all, I like the look of the home page. Very clean and professional looking. My other thoughts, however, are not exactly positive. I hope you will take them as helpful suggestions and not negative critiques.

- The home page is rather small on my screen. As a result, the font is very small and hard to read.

- I do not like that it automatically switches to the slideshow. If I were trying to read the information on the homepage, I wouldn't be able to do so.

- I would like to have some control over the slideshow. I would like to be able to make it move to the next picture or even just go faster.

- The menu bar at the top is distracting and has links to pages that you're not really using and that don't look as nice or professional as your home page.

- When I go to the contact page, after a minute or so it goes back to the home page. Why? I didn't want it to change pages.

- Same problem with the about us page. After a minute or so it goes to the contact page. I didn't even get to finish reading the paragraph you have there.

I hope my comments will help you develop a nice site for your photography work.
