This guy's site for black & white photography is pretty neat. I like the categories he uses to organize his work. I also love how big his photos are, and you only see one at a time. He fades the photo when you click to view the next photo, which is a really nice transition as well. His work is really amazing...take a look!

I know this is a retail site, but it also has a ton of fun and unique art pieces...I really like the background texture and the colored ribbons that distinguish the categories and tabs. There is a lot of material on this site, but I think that it is organized really well and is easy to navigate.

This site is fairly simple and easy to get around in, the only critique I would give it is that in the architecture screen, there is no where that tells you where the photo has been taken or what building or city that the building lives in.
There was so much info and it was so choppy and unorganized, I wasn't really sure who was doing the writing and what they were trying to convey. Who's web site is this and what are they trying to tell us or sell us......I'm not sure.

and his tour announcement video is funny too: http://www.mike-gordon.com/
one thing i don't like about this website is that the pictures are just between too big and just right. the up and down scroll throws me off and is a bit distracting, if she were to just resize her pictures a tiny bit it wouldn't show up and it would look amazing.

This site had all kinds of odd things. The menu bar was kind of cool yet annoying because you couldn't get away from the strings.....you have to see it to know what I'm talking about. There was dark music, different for each page. And on top of all that the art was dark. However, the site and the art combined made me intrigued.

This is not an artist's website, but it's closer to what I have in mind for my own teacher site. I love how clean and simple it is, very straight-forward and full of great information. I also love the color scheme.

its called scrollable and it is where you can scroll using either an arrow or a "next/previous" button where images slide to the right.
examples of this script are:
Although the art is really neat, it would be nice if there was some sort of writing that explains the photo, where it is, the place it was taken, and when it was taken.
This is a local design group that has a great colour palette and uses different layouts for their pages, 2 &3 column, thumbnail etc. I also like the way you can click through screen shots of their website designs under portfolio.

Not sure which one because the browser says one and the website says another. Also, they don't have the content they say they do and their pictures don't get any larger than thumbnails so you have to squint to see. There are also a lot of links that take you away from the main site.

I've been browsing through sites and found this one to be interesting because each picture can be painted by the viewer with the interactive paint brush. I like how the clouds, birds and people are animated, but not overly done.
For a fun website http://www.onemotion.com/ lets you do a number of things from sketch and paint to manipulate the moves of breakdancers.

I chose the Museum of Modern Art website as a strong example of a good website. Since millions of people view this site it really needs to be universally understood and not complicated. I think that the site is very interactive and definitely user friendly for most ages.

I really don't like how there seems to be no way to see the pictures at higher resolution. It's a clean layout, th0ugh.

This is a neat site that represents a lot of different photographers in one site. I like the color scheme, and easy navigation. It's pretty clean and simple. It reminds me of www.betterfly.com, which is a site that represents a variety of different people that provide services to better people's lives - like areobics, nutrition, etc.

I think this website is very simple, no frills, just straight up what the artist can do and what the artist has done. He also gives you all his info in an easy manner so you can hire him. The web site is very easy to navigate, and does not pull you in to other sights.

I like this designer's website because it's simple, clean, easy to navigate, creative, and very different than most. I love how she split the tree and put her info in between. I wish she had more work to portay, but it is an art in the making.
Reading #2 (also by Wednesday), some great color resources,

Here is a website that I came across while doing research last semester for Art of the Human Body; Photographer Jim Furness. I think it has nice simplicity and is easy to navigate. The slide show is good as well to catch the viewer and keep them interested. Enjoy.

This site I'm guessing is all done in flash, but its so much fun. Stick with it for a minute to really get the whole thing. It's funny, and it keeps your attention all while moving your eyes around the site.
Again other cool site with flash, but I also like the colours and the fact that the theme and the "little" monster don't really go together but they do at the same time. He's the right kind of "out of place".

Natalie is a young photographer whom I follow on flickr, and this is her own personal photography website. I'm really inspired by the creativity she put in her name logo on the main page, and I really enjoy reading and participating in her page; how when you click links there are pages that tell you to do things when you are waiting for the images to load, its really interactive and unique. It's also a really simple page and I love the layout.
there are a few glitches with the site that need to be fixed, some of the photos overlap with the logo in certain browsers, but i just thought it was simple and creative.

Some things I don't like about sites are when it takes ages to load and if they are so cluttered and busy. I like the black clean backgrounds of the documentary photo sites. I like when there are the small thumbnails of photos below a large view of one and that if you are on a little thumbnail it bounces to a slightly larger view or click on it to see the large view. The time factor of slow loading and clutter is a deterrent for me to wait to view. I also seem to like things centered and not moving here there and who knows where when you want to see it. I think when it is clean and simple and user friendly to everyone where you don't have to search to figure out how it works is appealing. If it doesn't fit well on the screen and you have to scroll to see the menu for gallery, home, contact etc I think that doesn't look right either. I will try to find other sites...
