I found this beauty shot online.

Then I had this wonderful model for the last bit of the assignment, my dog Virus.

Soft lighting:

Harder lighting (more dramatic):hard light

I could’ve gotten a more dramatic look, had I had a portable good lightsource (in which case my main lamp would be more from the same level as the subject instead of from above). Seeing as this was only a learning activity and not a mandatory assignment, I chose to save the use of an assistent to hold my lamp for next time.

First thing I had to do was to buy a domain. I got this one at domeneshop:

Here is the result, the way I see the webpage through my computer screen (ps: it does not function as well on smartphones or tablets)

Basic principles of layout


Take a magazine, newspaper or book that includes images and text. Lay tracing paper over the top of three spreads (both left-hand and right-hand pages). Using a pencil and ruler, carefully trace the grid underlying the page layouts. Remember to remove specific text elements or images, and to only draw the grid lines. Note column widths and margin sizes at the top, bottom, and to the left and right of the main body of text. Is your document based on a two-column, three-column, or another type of grid? Which elements stay the same on each page, and which change?

This book uses two grids, with an exeption of pages more focused on information than litterary expression, such as equipmentlists and other more generalized information which are put in pages within a blue square, using three columns.


Here is the oversight of grids in the three-columned page setup.


Here is the layout of every other page in the book, which I’m assuming is the master grid. It is built on two grids, which vary slightly in height as the length of text varies. On pages with photos, the photo stretches from left bleed on left page to end of first grid on the following page, which proves that the two-paged layout is the main layout, even used when grids are not visible through text columns. The style is symmetrical, but it can be argued that there is a sense of asymmetrical layout on pages with photos stretching further than one page. I would disagree, as they measure identically with the grid at their¬†ending points.

The head, fore edge, back and foot carry out symmetrical identities (sizes). This creates readability and simplicity, two favorites of mine and many others.
