Joom Noob - my site

Postby johnaldo » Sun Dec 13, 2009 3:38 am

Hey all!

I'm a total noob to Joomla and web-tweaking.
Please check out my portrait site: http://www.portraits.johnmagnoski.com

I modified this joomla template "Yoo Portfolia" (http://demo.yootheme.com/ ) to be ultra minimalistic and simple.

I am working on a clone of this site for my fine art photography as well: http://www.fineart.johnmagnoski.com/

Please tell me what you think.

Thanks!

VERY NICE...I LOVE THE HORIZONTAL SCROLL...LIKE A PHOTO REEL OR SOMETHING!

BTW UR A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER TOO, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW!

1 QUESTION: IS THE WHOLE SITE BLACK AND WHITE OR WILL THERE BE COLOR PHOTOS IN THE FUTURE?

:-[ Thanks Jason!

Yeah, I too love the horizontal scroll. That is why I purchased the template as soon as I discovered it.
There aren't too many out there. And I would LOVE to learn how to build one from the ground up... I would love for the menu system to stay put and have the images scroll "under" the menu system - if that makes sense at all.

My first site was built by my father and I using dream weaver, but updating it was always tedious. And so like so many photographers, I went flash for a while - but hated looking like every other photog out there. Then I discovered Joomla and found some really great portfolio templates out there, but this one became my favorite - especially after I tweaked it a bit to my liking. :D

Regarding color images...
For my main portrait site, it will be all B&W. After 15 years in the industry, I feel I need to stick with what I love (at least for now). I still shoot color when requested, and will present a simple lightroom gallery of my color work for clients who are new to me.

Again, thanks for the compliments!
