I once spent a LOT of time customizing the css for my blog so the layout and look would match my main web page. Turns out it matched so well it confused absolutely everyone and no one could tell if they were on my blog or my web page. So I am testing out some new WordPress themes at the moment, which is why you will see the design change quite a bit here as I try and land on something I like. Apologies for the mess while we re-decorate the entire place 🙂
My main webpage and gallery is of course at www.FlemmingBoJensen.com
New “real” blog post coming soon, stay tuned.
I recently did quite a few updates on my website, new features are:
- New elaborate About page featuring statement, vision, biography and equipment. Thanks to my friend Signe for helping with the writing. Text is also used on the About page here on my blog.
- New Namibia gallery online, new images are currently being added every day.
- New header image featuring Deadvlei from Namibia
- New front page layout with a News text column
- New slideshow images with more to come
The website was developed by me but designed by my friend Gudrun at Geeart.com, check out her new site! The changes on the front page and the new header image is all me though, so don’t blame her. I know she is in Namibia tearing out her hair seeing what I did to the joint! It is just a temp solution! This is the last of the major updates to my current website. My current site is hosted at the picture host Pbase.com and while it has served me well for many years and Pbase ensures many hits; you can only hack very simple html and css into the Pbase pages. In the coming months I intend to get a 100% custom site developed as I want many new features including an integrated shopping cart and much easier management of the site(s). It may end up as several sites or sub-sites as I need to separate the fine art images and the stock images. Anyway that is for the future, for now enjoy www.flemmingbojensen.com in it’s present form.
I presently have a designer working on the whole front page and logo design etc. of my web, while I’m working on the structure, layout and styling of the gallery and image pages (I certainly got better at html and css this past month) – and I’m selling some photos at the same time, hey things are good.
This week I have been working hard on finalizing the structure, layout and design of the Australia section of my gallery, and I am now ready to present what is one of the largest – and best of course! – Australia galleries on the entire web (click the thumbnail) :
The Australia Galleries of Flemming Bo Jensen Photography:
Some of the work done on my Australia gallery includes:
- House cleaning, deleted a lot of old photos. Gone are the holiday snapshots, only the strong survive so to speak.
- New structure based on places and themes. I have so many photos from Australia I had to invent a big structure to present the photos in smaller galleries hopefully making it easier to browse and navigate and find what you like.
- New gallery header image, gallery description on every single gallery.
- “Best of Australia” gallery showing a small selection of the very best of my Australia photos. Still a bit work-in-progress, I almost need someone else to do this. They’re my beloved Australia photos and deeply connected to the experiences of shooting them so I have a hard time selecting “the best”. All the photos in the “Best of” are not half bad though.
- Panoramas of Australia gallery showcasing my Australia panoramas. As some of you readers will know I love the panorama format (anything at 2:1 or wider) and this is a special gallery using large thumbnails to better present these wide shots.
- Map of Australia gallery showing you all of the galleries placed geographically on a large clickable map of Australia. You can click the thumbnails on the map to visit the gallery.
- Animals of Australia gallery. That is still very much work in progress though, I have so many photos that still need to be developed from RAW and added here.
There are still many photos from my recent trip to be added, you can keep up to date by checking my What’s New gallery every day.
Like the Australian Tourism ad says: Where the bloody hell are ya? Go take a tour down under in my Australia gallery!
Let me know what you think of the new Australia galleries. My Copenhagen gallery will get the same treatment soon I think.
(…oh and alright then, ok, there are possibly, just maybe, much larger Australia galleries online in the galaxy somewhere – but I needed a catchy headline!)
I am presently working on the structure and design of my website. I have added a small slideshow and a Google custom search function to the front page and created a much needed page with information about purchasing my photos (have also added that to this blog).
I am creating a new Australia section of my site with the best of my many Australia photos structured into smaller galleries like Sydney, Uluru etc. hopefully making it easier to find what you’re looking for – if not there’s a search button for ya! A lot of the old photos were holiday snapshots and have been deleted. The remaining old Australia photos from slides that I still want on the site will be re-uploaded in much better quality, having now been scanned on a slide scanner at 4800 dpi and 16-bit colour in the fantastic Vuescan software. It’s like breathing new life into my old slides and scanner, Vuescan is that good! Still to come in the Australia section: galleries with Best of Australia and Panoramas of Australia and a clickable map showing you the geographical location of my galleries AND lots of new images.
Everything is still very much work in progress, but have a look at the site and tell me what you think! Well, so far so good, the structure I can do but…as for the design of my logo and front page….I can shoot photos but am definitely not a designer! The front page and especially my logo and logotype is nowhere near how I want it to look. I have to hire a pro designer to do this, everything I design ends up looking like what it is – amateur hour! So a new front page is coming at some point but untill then let me know what you think!
