I’m interested in what HTML5/CSS3 are bringing to the Web. A simple thing like using CSS to drop shadow an image is Â quite nice. Beats having to use Photoshop…
Based on the drop shadow alone, I thought it would be good to begin using these two new web standards, So I changed my photography site Stills from one using a Lightroom HTML template to one of my own implemented with HTML5 and CSS3.
For now it is quite rudimentary, it shows photos in a classic gallery style with little changes from a conventional HTML/CSS 2.1 site. As I have more time, I will use tools like Modernizer to help ensure viewers have a good experience regardless of browser.
I’ll also incorporate the database approach I used for my film site. Currently, I have a “hand-crafted” site which requires a new html page for every new photo. After a few photos, the overhead gets to be quite a pain.
