Photographer Websites

Been looking at a lot of photographer’s websites lately.

Here is one piece of opinion for all you photographers out there

Please, for the love of humanity, stop using flash.

Using flash is a terrible way to display your photographs.

1) It takes forever to load.

2) The photos are small and often cannot be resized.

3) You cannot link to a photo to you like

4) The user interface/interaction your flash designer created is horrible

5) Your creative flash intro/effects are not that creative and I don’t really care for it.

What you should do:

1) Use a popular image gallery like flickr or picasa if you are not paranoid about privacy

2) Show bigger photos if you have them
