Hello, after a hectic few weeks learning Flash I managed to work out this photo gallery template and Ive been working for last 20 hours straight trying to finish it...
please let me know if there are errors (can never be sure with dyslexia) and also the hardest part was choosing the images and cutting down a lot on them...do you like the selection..does it come as amateurish or pro as the photos range from when I first started 9 month ago up till this month's shoots, thanks a lot.


before I forget the address :)

Firstly good work on getting the site up and running I wish I had the patience (and ability!!). I too cannot spot any glaring errors.
As for content it's always in the eye of the beholder. I like the abstract stuff, and think the London stuff could be stronger (love the "on the tube shot"). Some of book one is a bit repetitive (for example the 2nd last and 5th last shots are virtually the same).The one downside to my eye however are the shots with the model with the blue hair. To my eyes (and again it's only an opinion) these look so "false" (wether it's a wig, photoshopping or real) and for some reason makes the shots look amateur.Best shots to my eye that also bring out your skill are those of the model in the ripped jeans, good model, good locations and brilliant shooting!!There you go, hope that helps in some small way.
andyb

Hi, thank you both guys for the feed back. as I'm writting this I'm actually picking alternative photos...however I thought the ones with the ripped jeanse are good shots but her glam shots in lingerie are a bit too much...too erotic lets say and it might be off putting to some people so I'm thinking of replacing those with more cute shots...I know what you mean by the the blue hair shots...i thought it was just cute and would tone down my rather more adult-ish port its a wig I bought for a tena by the way..but I will think about it again. the abstract long exposure stuff and non-model stuff are there to serve the purpose of me showing em being really into photography and not just beauty but yeah I love them photos...thank you ever so much for looking at my port and giving me detailed feedback..and even more being very sensitive and polite in the way you gave the feed back, it's something not many people know how to do. cheers

Hi,

Well done on getting the site up and running and learning Flash in that amount of time!

It looks good to me, only one thing, it is off-centre and to the right of my screen (I'm using firefox).

Also if I was being picky, I'd rename the book 1, 2 etc from the category menu to make it clearer what type of work it is to quickly see if it is something I want to look at further, as you did with the nature/landscape work.

Looking good though, and easy to use, nice and fast too for me

Thank you, I did programme it to align to the centre but it doesn't seem to want to work, I will try to fix it in a few days I just can't bare looking at flash and its scripting language Member Image .
the hardest part is actually choosing the photos and the order of them, I had them first as fashion then glamour 1 then glamour 2 then art nude which is quite important not to mix the glam and art nude and for the models invloved too..but I don't think I have any proper fashion shots and it got messy with the order of the files and naming 100 photos then finding their thumbnails one by one then referencing each photo in flash so the flash player can call on the photos and find them and after a few packs of cigarrets I just thought fuf it book 1 and 2 it is..but now I think I will be taking your advice seriously, and I'm adding the cheesy before and after which I hate but its great for getting work from ordinary people (not superhumans like us models and togs Member Image )
ps
(don't attempt this at home just pay a pro for your web site)

if you view the site on full screen it is centred, but the full screen button is located at the bottom right of the site Member Image

If you do not want to give out your number can also have an answering service who take the calls for you.  They are a call centre that answer your extension with your business name.

Hope you only have good contacts!!! x
