Time is flying… not too long ago Yuval (my baby boy in the pictures above) was a small baby and now he looks so mature, especially compared to his younger sister (2 months old, pictures soon).

With two kids I barely have any time to really do photography sessions, given the constraints and my passion for photography the result is more family portraits :-).

I am heading tonight to couple of business meetings in Boston for 2 days. Stay tuned for new photos…

Nir & Inbal Messiqa Wedding

I’ve had the great honor of being the best man in Nir and Inbal wedding. While I was not the photographer of the event I joined the photo session and grabbed some photos. Here are selected images:

In case you have noticed, in the past weeks the site has being updated much less than the usual. Hopefully life will settle down in few days and the blog updates will become more frequent … ;-)

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…

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.
