I tested the website with the class, and these are the responses I got from my feedback form
Neoteric Photography aims to explore photography in an age where the image is everywhere. The image has become prolific yet easily forgotten. Hoping to find something to hold onto, something that will survive longer that it takes for pixels to appear upon a screen.

Website UX Testing
Finalising the Book
Once I had completed the book photographs and text, I began adding this to Blurb pages using Bookwright. When this was completed I uploaded this to Blurb

Finalising the Website
To complete this project and website I added my work to the portfolio pages. I add buttons and then embedded the link so that the flipbook I created just opened up in a new window. I did this by clicking on the 'Add' and then 'button' in the menu and then I placed the button in the correct position on the page and set up the links to either the website page or in the case of the flipbook the website address.

Reshoot: Pregnant Barbie and Perfect Age Barbie
I reshot both pregnant Barbie and perfect age barbie as the pregnant barbie originally was shot on a Canon 700D and I did not think the images were consistent with the rest of the shoot. Perfect age Barbie I just thought she looked a little awkward in the images and I wanted to repose and reshoot to get what I had in mind for the book.
These are the contacts from the reshoot. Again taken on the Olympus E10-II, the settings I started with were ISO 100, F4, 1/100, 19mm focal length and shot in photo light box.
I liked these as she looks confident, perfect at the height of her powers and this is what I wanted with these images. This was supposed to be the perfect age Barbie (around 30) all is good!
Photo Shoot: Teenage Barbie
The one I was waiting for to complete the images was teenage Barbie. I have now shot these on my Olympus E-M10-II using settings F3.5, Shutter speed 1/80, ISO 100 focal length 14mm. Exposure compensation -1.
These are the contacts from the session using the photo lightbox

Book Process: Stages of Woman
I downloaded Bookwright from Blurb and chose the Tradebook option in 8 x 10. I set up the pages and uploaded images that I would start with and see what they looked like. I then looked at the layouts and added a text layout on the left-hand side of each double page and a single photo layout for the right-hand page.
I added pages at the beginning for the title and inside page with copyright using another text and image layout.
Choosing the right photographs was difficult and I reshot pregnant Barbie and Woman as pregnant barbie I originally shot with a different camera and so she did not look the same as the other images and I needed consistency.
I will now just check and adjust the text and add the last image this week so I can then export as a PDF to create a flipbook and upload real book to Blurb for printing so I can get a hard copy
