Apologies for the delay in the progression of my portfolio.
I finally had time to make the minor improvements needed, and I have added new photos in the Weatherscape, Landscape, and Black & White Sections as well.
Also it seems like I am only able to change my domain once. So I will have to use the current domain I have now. But I did make a few adjustments on the main page, and my about page to clarify myself and my portfolio. Good thing I am set with my artist format, S.D. Weather & Landscape Fine Art Imaging, so it will never change.
I hope you enjoy the changes I have made!
Enjoy!September 26, 2013 at 6:27 pm #21299
Thanks for sending in your portfolio of images. I think the changes you’ve made have greatly improved the site.
On this page:
The description could be written a little better:
Like weather which is my biggest passion. Landscapes is another growing passion of mine.
I like to be able to showcase the simplicity of mother nature, and capture the spirit of place that I am photographing.
I like to capture intense colors and shapes which make the photograph that much more awe inspiring.
Also since your weather and cloud photographs are your passion I think you should focus on those. In other words maybe even feature them more prominently on your main page.
Another note would be that it’s a bit confusing that the black and white section is surrounded by black and white photographs:

Now the main thing with your website is that you want to treat it like a garden. If you leave it on it’s own it will slowly die.
Keep working on it and don’t stop!!!
Nice work man.October 16, 2013 at 8:45 am #21300
Thank you for giving me some critique, and the tips on how to improve my portfolio!
I have taken what you have told me into account, and I am definitely treating my portfolio as if it were like a garden.
I am currently revising, and adding the finishing touches to perfect my portfolio before finally I move on to my next assignment!
I will have the portfolio turned in again before the week is over. I’ve also added some images from my trip to Corpus Christi, Texas that you will really enjoy! 😀
Thanks!October 17, 2013 at 5:23 pm #21301
Keep working hard on it!October 19, 2013 at 7:54 pm #21302
Here it is the final touch ups for the site! I made to add good descriptions in each section, and added a variety of photo’s for each section. It is about where it needs to be. But I will continue to always update and keep up with the site.
Enjoy!October 27, 2013 at 7:49 pm #21303
You’ve made some good improvements here.
On this page you have several black and white cloud images which feels a bit like an overlap of the weatherscapes section: (also is weatherscapes an actual word? or did you just invent your own genre? i like the idea of weatherscapes!)
You might want to include a profile picture and reformat your about page. The paragaph spacing looks a bit werid on my machine.
Also you don’t have to say things like, “an aspiring intermediate professional photographer” Just own it, just call yourself a photographer!
Overall you’ve done a nice job here!!November 5, 2013 at 7:44 pm #21304
I got everything corrected. The paragraphs and also got rid of a large portion of cloud shots from the B&W section so it’s all balanced now.
I thank you for being patient with me on this particular assignment. Since I look to pursue photography as more than just a hobby. I want to make sure everything is in order!
I think everything is now where it needs to be! But of course I will always keep up to date with it! I’m about ready to move on to the final assignments!
I also added a new link to my profile on ViewBug.com so please feel free to give that a look as well 🙂
Thanks!December 2, 2013 at 4:34 pm #21305
