URLs

Ron Solomon Photography

Website for an independent professional photographer. I did all the coding and collaborated on the information design. The most interesting part is probably the gallery pages and the way the popup windows are built on the fly.

My duties included a ton of ASP, HTML, and database programming, creating all the graphics for the site, and trying to improve the user interface as much as possible on top of the existing infrastructure of the site.
