You have heard me say this a million times but either focus showing your best work or no work at all. This is not meant to scare you or tell you to do anything you don’t want to do it’s more to help you see that putting your best foot and pictures is the best way.
The truth of the matter is if you have second thoughts about the quality of an image you should probably not share it. You control what people consume which means you are controlling the message. Keep in mind that this is subjective, if you LOVE something you should show it and stand behind it.
I rather see 10 SOLID keepers opposed to 20 eh shots. If you don’t put your best foot forward you are leaving your work to major interpretation by the people who are seeing it.
Now let’s take a look at the site I critiqued this time around. The first thing I noticed right off the bat that the main image on the page was a picture of the photographers business card. That is not the way I would introduce people to my work. I think the best thing to do is lead off with your best work or a short slide show.
As I progressed in through the site I noticed that when looking at a gallery I had no way of seeing all the images on the screen at once. I had to arrow through everything in order to see the images. This may be personal preference but I like having the option of seeing a thumb of all the images so I can decide what I would like to see.
I would change up the orders of some of the galleries and focus on the portraits and photo stories the most. I love the story of the bikes, I felt like they were alive and not just objects. If you can make inanimate objects have emotion, you have done something right.
All and all there are some very solid keepers in this site and with a little tweaking it will be on it’s way.
