Site updates

Screen Resolution

For a while I was thinking about increasing the website resolution (website width). While it seems a simple decision, I was not sure what are the most widely used monitors today and whether such increment will be problematic to some of the visitors.

This is where Google analytics came in to play. One of the many parameters that analytics monitors is the screen resolution. The following graph shows the screen resolutions of the blog visitors from the last month:

The above information shows that ~90% of the users are using wide screen and/or high resolution monitors and only 10% are still using 1024×768. Following this input I’ve decided to increased site width. Visitors with low resolution monitors can use browser zoom functionality to overcome this limit.

So, what’s new?

Ok, so what is new in the updated site design:

  • Wider resolution, photographs are much bigger now!
  • Updated Portfolio design, sleeker & faster than previous one. I’m currently test-driving the zoom/pan functionality, would highly appreciate your input.
  • Updated ‘Web Recommendation’ Sidebar (bottom right menu)
  • New image enlargement script, click on the analytics screenshot above to see.

Would be great to hear your feedback…

Henna

1/60 @ f/4.0, ISO 640 | Canon 5D with 16-35mm f/2.8L @ 35mm

Ben, my cousin, is getting married next week and few days ago he & his future wife had a Henna ceremony. While the event had a dedicated photographer I joined from time to time (mostly in video). The photo above was captured while the families were dressing up for the ritual.

Professional Modeling

1/320 @ f/1.8, ISO 800 | Canon 5D with 50mm f/1.8

While touring London National Gallery, Yuval (my baby boy) seemed to be in the right mood for posing… this is the result…

Walk of love

1/200 sec @ 4.0 / 4, ISO 400 | Canon 5D with 70-200 F/4L @ 200mm

Photographed in a family walk in Yaffo. I find Liat look to really express genuine love (but I might be biased)…

Weekly Family Portrait

1/200 sec @ 4.0 / 4, ISO 200 | Canon 5D with 70-200 F/4L @ 176mm

As of this week I’m starting a new weekly tradition in which each Monday will be dedicated to a family portrait.
As you might have noticed already, I’ve started using Canon 580II flash with remote trigger (ST-E2). Would appreciate any comments and suggestions how to improve myself…

Learning to eat

Every once in a while I feel the need to share Yuval’s (my lovely boy) photographs. Here are few from a recent walk in the neighborhood:
