    Revamped my website, what do you think?

    http://michaelsergiobarnes.com/

    I am not selling services or prints and hence that stuff is omitted.

    And I'm mostly interested in the website as it is (layout, font, image sizing/organization, and etc.) and not on the actual images (composition, lighting, poses, and etc.) unless it is relevant.

    I really like he simplicity of the layout and the overall design. I don't like fussy sites so yours look good to me.

    Hi Michael:

    Aesthetically the site is very pleasing and it responds quickly in my browser. The self-portrait (I assume) on the Info page is striking and very well chosen.

    I am a little bit confused by the organization.

    At the bottom of the Info page I see four links: Portraits | Blog | Flickr | Instagram

    The Portraits link takes me to a page with a number of moderately sized thumbnails for portraits. Clicking on the thumbnails takes me to some larger versions of several images

    At the left side of the Info page there are four more links: Graphite - Environmental - Indoors - Candids

    Each of those links takes me to a page with a moderate number of larger images.

    I would prefer to see a heading for Portraits, with further sub-headings for particular classifications.

    And I would prefer more consistency with thumbnail sizes and image sizes.

    It also would help if you identified the images in some way - to help those who might wish to refer to favourites, for example.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Really really like your page. Simple and effective.

    Just one thing... is the fact that Rolleiflex image is actually reversed intentional? It looks somewhat weird in my opinion.

    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I assume that it was a self-portrait taken using a mirror.

    First vertical scrolling portfolio site I've seen in some time.

    Thanks, I will work on this. Those four links are seperate pages and i can see why it is confusing. The idea was to check out these links for more work and for my social media.

    Thanks! And yes, the Rolleiflex image was taken in a mirror and hence I didn't invert the negative.

    I kind of thought so but I thought I'd tell you....

    With some context such as mirror, or dresser, or something showing within the image, it'd be clear. It's your site, it's your design.... Just my opinion. I really like your site for its simple appearance.
