Photo Research

For my Web Design class, we are each designing our own websites. This is a process that is easier said than done. Using HTML and CSS we have to develop a website completely from scratch. I am in the final stages of this project that is due in just two short weeks. We are being prompted to design the website based around an object, memory or tradition that greatly influences our lives, or we find inspiration from.  I chose to create a website focused on the camera. An object that I believe is greatly overlooked and under appreciated by most. My website will focus on photography and video, to showcase the history and inter workings of the camera, and the amazing art it can produce. The main goal of my website is to provide insight into  visual stimulation, something that influences me greatly.

Through research on various photographers and photographs, I have come across some very interesting blogs and websites that I have really enjoyed browsing. I am sharing some of the photos I’ve found as a sort of preview of what’s to come with my website.

These photos are all from a Tumblr that showcases vintage photos of influential filmmakers, actors, models, etc.

These are just a glimpse into what I have been experiencing while doing loads of research. I wanted to share these images with you all, because they are so mesmerizing to me, and maybe they will be to you as well. Be on the lookout for a link to my new website, I will be posting it on here when it is complete.
