    Hello everyone. I decided to go for a complete change in my theme to my website and the new one is up. I still have to add a bunch of my work to my gallery especially my graphic design stuff but here it is. BTW I designed the website.

    i opened it, then immediately closed it. the music that was forced up on me totally ruined my serene evening of listening to Erik Satie. i went to the site to see photographs and check out a website - i'm already listening to music.

    haha. This is my first website I have ever put music in and I am half and half on keeping it. You could have easily paused in the slide show.

    if there were a HUGE stop or pause button smack dab in the middle of the page, i would've clicked it, then hung around. as it is, i couldn't bear but 2 seconds of it.

    here's a thought: put a player on the site that does NOT play on load. allow the visitor to choose to play the music.

    meh that would break up my design so I would rather not. I might just take it off seeing that there is such a big issue over my audio than my photos and design.

    i sympathize with your desire to create a mood and/or convey your tastes via music.


    you may want for others to chime in before you change your site; i'm just little ol' me listening to Erik Satie expressing my opinion.

    Well i went into it not knowing if i should have music and I dont think its professional enough especially when I am having some people helping me get some internships and trying to shadow some pros.

    i respect your thought process.

    if you want to pursue photography, then showcase your photography....and present it simply and well.

    best wishes with your pursuits.

    I like it, all around it's really nice, good job!

    My only suggestion would be to change the titles of each page to something unique, it'll help to you get indexed by Google

    And no sound was definitely the right choice, if sound will be an option, it needs to default to off and let the user turn it on

    good point about google but if you search my name or erave designs I come up either first or top 3 already. But if i wanted to have a higher score when someone searches photography that could help.

    My first thought is "survivor."
    If you want music, put it on, I have it on mine and think it works very will. Having done my own site for years (in html) I wanted to upgrade to a flash site because of its dynamic and interactive nature. I went with Blu Domain and am happy with the results, but don't recommend unless you are a little tech savvy. I assume that your site posted isn't finished yet but overall I think it is nice. Ask yourself "Who am I selling to?" and "How dose this site relate to them... Draw them to my work?"
