Hello everyone. I have just created my own website, and did it on my own, and would like you all to take a look at it and tell me what you think. Critiques are greatly appreciated, since this website has been getting me alot of work lately. All of your input would be greatly appreciated, so I can make my site better to help my modeling career. If you would like, you can sign my guestbook at the bottom of my main page, and include your e-mail so I can get back to you. If not, just write me back here in the forum. Thanks for all of your help! Angela Terranova

Hello and welcome!

A few thoughts.

1. Opening page requires scrolling left to right - that's a big huge website no-no.

2. The cursor following thingy is (maybe) cute but will be seen by many as annoying and unprofessional - I'd suggest losing it. I had one of those myself years ago, till this was pointed out as seeming "teenagerish".

3. Many of your portfolio pics are clearly very photoshopped using various "watercolor" type filters - this makes it difficult to accurately assess both what you really look like and also the skill of the photogs you've worked with. Also gives an "un-pro" feel to the site. Photogs want to see the texture of your skin, flaws, etc.

4. Many of your images have the width/height perspective "squashed". Why?

5. On this page: http://www.angelaterranova.com/angiewebsitepage4.html , in my opinion the text needs to be broken up into smaller chunks/paragraphs.

Just one persons feedback.

I have to agree w/ Kurt. Although I didn't have to scroll right on the front page...

Definitely lose the pointer curser & the music. Midi music doesn't come out the same on everyone's 'puter & usually sounds annoying. Of course, you can press the Esc button, but every time you get to that page again, it's reset...

I think that you have a look & can acquire a good look. I see 3 things wrong w/ the images:

1. The obvious watercolor mentioned by Kurt.
2. The height/width thing as also pointed out by Kurt &
3. The poor compression quality of the images. It appears to have been set @ 30%, losing a lot of detail & color accuracy...

I'd concentrate on getting the images perfect & possibly cutting down on the number of images that are too similar. It's better to have a few excellent images & leave the potential client wanting more, rather than to see a bunch of stuff that's not at it's best...

Regards,
Paul

AAAAHHHHHH! what is that awefully frightening noise!

You need to warn me better next time.

Any website is better than none at all.
I recommend every new web designer read
WEB DESIGN FOR NON-DESIGNERS by Robin Williams.

This book is a sort of primer on "design" in general.

Learn the do's and dont's and you will certainly learn to attract visitors.
