Four Themes for Photographers and Photobloggers

Maybe you’re working on a 365 project, with a photo for each day of the year. With a couple months under your belt, you might be looking for a new theme to showcase your work. Let’s check out four themes where the typography and color palettes step aside so that your photos get your visitors’ full attention.

Cubic

Made with photographers and photobloggers in mind, Cubic is eye-catching and bold out of the box. Its pleasing homepage grid showcases your posts’ featured images.

Consider this subtle, almost ethereal application of Cubic at WE THE BIRDS, a site “dedicated to the travelers, the nomads, the free spirits, the culturally aware, the expat kids.” The Birds’ muted photography looks fantastic with the theme’s dark filter option for featured images. Using the site logo feature, they’ve uploaded a beautiful feather illustration that lends a unique, personal touch to their site.

Minnow

Minnow‘s gray color palette accentuates photography. The social links menu knows its place: front and center on the homepage, it will encourage visitors to share your work on their favorite social networks.

We loved Minnow in action at AMSTERDAMMING, a fun, vibrant, photo-filled blog chronicling life in Amsterdam through Andra’s eyes. Her photo collages are particularly stunning. A short trip through her blog, and you might be ready to pack your bags for a visit or even a move to the Netherlands.

Radcliffe

Radcliffe’s full-width images are ideal for showcasing your latest photographs.

Check out Radcliffe in full force at JONASRASK|PHOTOGRAPHY, where, as a visitor, you get a wonderful sample of Jonas‘ incredible work simply scrolling through stacked images on his homepage. Jonas intersperses stark black and white featured images with brilliant color, to great dramatic effect.

Editor

Editor‘s large and sophisticated typography and gray color palette offer the perfect canvas for any photographer or photoblogger.

Rob Moses‘ sharp red and blue site logo is the first thing that grabs your attention, until you catch sight of his work; you can easily lose yourself scrolling through his stunning photos of life in Calgary, Alberta. Winter is particularly beautiful, as seen through Rob‘s lens.

Luckiest in the world

We had a romantic dinner in a small restaurant, a little table on the corner, with a red and wite tablecloth, and a trembling candle that Rum  had to keep lighting cause it insisted on extinguishing.
Then we walked back home talking, laughing and kissing (it took a while, we were not in a hurry).

Ree and Umi were not around when we arrived (thank you, girls).
'The best part of this', said Rum while kissing me at my bedroom's door, 'is that I dont have to sleep on that torture couch you have in the livingroom'.
'Ohhh did you seduce me to avoid the couch?'
'Did I seduce you?Oh wow, good for me, I thought you were drunk'.
'You are unbearable', I giggled.
'I agree. Unbearable and the luckiest man in the world'.
And tonight, girls, tonight I have EVERYTHING ready...

I Wish!

I’m off for one of my weekend breaks this weekend but unlike my normal cottage weekender’s this is a city break and as much as I’m looking forward to it I really REALLY want to go and look at this….

The Eiffle tower of course.  I’ve been lucky enough to visit Paris twice in my life once as a child and once as a teenager but as an adult it’s still on my wish list of places to go, however my OH has been twice, he goes on cycling holidays and there’s no way I’m putting my sorry ass through all of that work, and on his last visit he not only gave me the obligatory picture of himself and his bike, posing in front of one of the most famous towers in the World he also brought back a tacky and yet beautiful Eiffle tower ornament made of glass and filled with sweeties.  It’s now standing in my kitchen filled with Balsamic Vinegar.

OK enough waffling.  These ornaments come from Follow Us and because they’re another 48 hour discount on the Marketplace I thought I’d get them in quick.  For 99Lds you get the same base colour of silver and the 3 sizes and copyable which you can see I went overboard with in this picture.  The “love” comes with a choice of colours, red, pink or blue (my fav) but they’re in separate packs.  So if you want the blue writing (my fav) then buy the blue pack etc.

Best of all and I almost missed it, I even took a load of piccies before I realised that the V and E of the word have little lights on them and if you click on them they light up.  You have 2 colours white, shown, and random.  Once I’d clicked on them all my whole room was glowing.  I took the picture in my Nams setting but all those little lights brighten and warmed up the room.

I think theses look just as good as stand alone pieces or for something as dramatic such as my mantlepiece.  I’m very much into scene setting and if I had a SL lover then for a romantic evening I’d rezz a whole load of these and a table groaning with food and of course one of the wine ladened trolleys/carts which can also be picked up from the Follow Us Marketplace shop.

Don’t worry because I always finish off my Follow Us posts with a reminder that there are a total of 35 items priced between 1-10Ls and even more 11-100Lds and they’re all brilliant quality.  You can of course for just a token 40Lds join Laurent83Waco’s inworld group and grab everything that’s out for group members.
