Site Navigation for Simon Hawketts’s Photo Blog
Thanks for visiting my photo blog; this post is to help you locate the articles which hopefully are of interest to you.
As the title would suggest the site mainly covers photography and mostly film and vintage photography but there are also posts on digital photography, camera repair and some photographic theory articles.
There are several ways to find the articles which may be interesting to you. First there is the site search function which is located at the top of the sidebar to the right. Just enter a phrase into the box and click the magnifying glass icon and you will get a list of articles which match your request. You should be aware that the searches are full text searches of all the articles, so if for example you entered ‘Pentax film camera’ you would get results for all articles which contain these words (or some of these words) in the article.
The next way you may find something of interest (particularly if you found this site via a vintage camera link from google) is to use the two index posts which cover vintage cameras and vintage lenses, which are also on the right hand sidebar under the Search box. Each leads to an index page which lists all the vintage cameras or lenses in my collection. You will find links in these to the reviews of each and also links to sample pictures if they have been tested yet. By the way, if the camera or lens hasn’t yet had sample images remember to revisit because I’m working my way through them all.
Another mechanism for finding posts is to use the tag cloud which is on the bottom of the sidebar. Each of the tags is a clickable link to articles which are tagged with the individual word; the tags which are in the biggest fonts are the tags which have the most articles written about them. I am in the process of tidying these up to reduce the number of tags used so I’m hoping this will become a more useful mechanism in the future.
Lastly, there is the main menu across the top of the page. This also gives entry pages into the various different subject areas of the site.
On many of the posts there are pictures which are grouped into galleries – these are a convenient way of grouping pictures but they don’t generally show the pictures in their full resolution. Many of the articles have links which lead to a full size version, but it’s possible to see any particular picture in full size by right clicking on it and choosing the option called ‘view in new tab’ or something similar.
Again, thanks for visiting – if you find the articles of use or interesting please consider following the site using the ‘Follow via Email’ link on the sidebar.
