My Photography website

I have created a website all about photography and photographic styles, I chose this topic because I enjoy photography and know a fair bit about it.

I made my site within Dreamweaver as you can make a template easily and has a lot of compatibility for different types of script, also it is easier and quicker to update.

For my site content I got some information from Wikipedia and Weburbanartist, I chose these sites because Wikipedia gives an in depth view of the search result and Weburbanartist showed a list of styles and techniques which were relevant to my site.

I knew that Wikipedia was a trustworthy site and Weburbanartist gave good information that I know is right, through personal knowledge. For copyright on any images I used I checked they were viable with Creative Commons. I browsed the sites and collected what I needed.

I used Diigo and some screenshots to show where I got my information from and I used Flickr with a Creative Commons filter to get images. I didn’t find it to hard to find material as there is a lot of information and images of cameras and styles of photography.

At first I was designing my site in Kompozer which as outdated and hard to work out, then I switched to Dreamweaver which is much more user friendly. I changed one of my pages from a web store to a gallery as I thought it would be more appropriate to the site.

If I had more time the site could be improved visually with a cleaner theme and more interactive features, although it is informative and easy to navigate.  I made corrections to some of the grammar on the pages to make sure it reads professionally, for example I needed to make sure I hadn’t used apostrophes for plurals and used correct capitalisation for proper nouns.

In summary I think the website serves its purpose as an introduction to photography and it encourages people to try some new techniques.
