After enjoying photography for just over a year, I decided to build a portfolio for my favourite images.
About the selection
The website contains just a small selection of my photographs. When creating the selection I tried to only include the best, while also representing the different types of pictures I like to take.
The photographs are organised in several categories. The most important categories are travel destinations I visited over the last year. Other categories are focused on food and portrait photography for example.
About the design
The design is kept minimalistic to keep the focus on the photographs. In addition, every page starts with a big image to catch the users eye. Galleries contain relatively big thumbnails, but a very selective amount of images to let the user keep a good overview.
With the help of jQuery and imagelightbox.js, users can click on the images to enlarge them. The advantage of imagelightbox.js is that it comes with no design of it’s own, allowing you to design it from the ground up (and consistent with the website).
