In the name of active learning i carried out one of my least favorite photo positions: holding up a laptop. A team in my web design for non profit class at Pace University was writing instructions for the optimal photo used for the web or social media. A clear unobstructed view of two subjects is easier to focus on and tell a story. It is one of those cases where more is not better.
Capturing twenty plus students working on a non profit website provides the feeling of a data center. If we had to do it again, I’d at least open up the client website to obtain branding points.
Sports athletes generate inspiration from the viewer when they are caught actively using their tools. How do you capture a subject typing and the logo on the screen simultaneously? Should we insert a logo on the wall behind us?
There is more to web design than tags and stylesheet references, but you need to focus on the way the information is displayed.
