Most of the insects were taken with canon SD780 last summer in the backyard, before the idea of a website was conceived. I will only "develop" from here.

I will need a new camera soon, as 2 have gone bad (including the canon & a Nikon).

I like the images, good job. The only thing, website wise, would be the font. I don't know why, but I really dislike Times New Roman for websites, they look too rugged and I just don't find them to be smooth enough for visual arts or any kind of professional website. It could be personal preference though.

Thanks, the website is a work in progress (it's only been up 3 weeks), & I have already made multiple changes. Which Font would you use? Appreciate your time

I think your photos are wonderful but I find your home page a bit jazzy. Bright yellow text on a black background is a bit stark.

You ask about fonts. Serif fonts (such as Times Roman) are a bit old fashioned. Make sure you pick a
Universal Font that suits Windows and Mac computers. My own favourite is Treubchet MS as,
according to research somewhere or other, it is one of the most easily read fonts for those who are visually challenged.

For your web site home page please consider a dark grey background rather than black (#333333 is good)
or a dark grey subdued pattern - and here I plug my own site - very out of date I fear

Good luck

Martin

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!

Background & font changed with a few other "improvements", if you have a chance check it out. it's a work in progress. Thanks again for your comments.
