Take Off the Lens Cap Project

Overview

As well as web designing and hoax-slaying, I am also a passionate photographer. Photography is an incredibly exciting and versatile art form and it is a constant journey of learning and discovery.

Brief

I wanted to create a website that focuses on two main areas:

1: Showcasing my photography.

2: Blogging about photography.

The site also needed a separate About and Contact Page

Outcome

I created a site using WordPress and the Genesis Theme Framework that incorporates a sophisticated image gallery system via the NextGen Gallery plugin. This plugin allowed me to create a series of portfolio pages featuring photographs on different topics. Image boxes linking to these portfolio pages are displayed on the site homepage. The portfolio pages can also be accessed via the site navigation menu.

Since blogging is an important component of the site, the latest blog posts are displayed on the homepage as well.
