The ReThink Project: part II

Not the camera, the website!

Dar es SalaamDar es SalaamThe cross harbor ferry arrives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's largest city. For years there has been talk of a bridge joining the short stretch but as the project lingers and city population grows the ferry becomes more and more crowded.

After trying to rethink my approach to photography, I came up with a few ideas that were... just OK. I was initially thinking about revisiting portraiture since it's an area that I find very challenging. But I haven't been inspired to really dive into this so my camera sat idle for some time.

A new direction I am thinking about is to give my website an overhaul. The problem I keep running into is the fact that my current website is so diverse (wildlife to landscape to journalism - ???). I'm a firm believer of "less is more" but this has gotten away from me and my site is feeling cluttered.

When I look at other professional sites there is usually just a handful of named projects on the front page. I will have to do more research to see what works best for the viewer (and the organization doing the hiring).

So rather than rethink my shooting, I'm going to rethink my presentation. 

And again... I head back to the drawing board... to be continued...
