Website Design & Photography - Pictures Tell, Words Sell
Powerfully and silently, pictures effectively express ideas and thoughts. Pictures are worth a thousand words and have a telling impact on the viewers mind. Since time immemorial, pictures have been used increasingly to communicate message.
The internet also makes use of pictures extensively, just like other forms of communication such as television, film, and other mediums which may use a combination of both static and dynamic images.
Images are an integral part of website design. It is very much significant to note that images can enhance the look of a website and invite in more and more traffic but if it is used poorly, it will only serve to put browsers off and discourage them from visiting again.
Where it is true that the text content of your site will dictate how well your website will show up, what you will need to consider is how to grab your visitor’s attention once they have accessed your site. As the internet has developed, so has the quality of the general presentation of websites and good photography provides good images.
If something doesn’t look ‘right’, then it can stick out like a sore thumb, leading the visitor to consider the professionalism of the business which they could potentially be spending their money with.
If not 100% convinced a competitor is, after all, only a click away... Your website represents you. It conveys to the whole world your business, and visually it is essential to make it look good.
To this end, you either have to be confident of producing the required standard of images yourself or do the sensible thing – employ a photography professional from Virtual Eye Media.
The Importance of Photography
For as long as we have been developing websites, we have known how important photography is to the design of a site.
It is, in fact, one of the most crucial aspects, next to the user interface or the content, and can be the very difference between a good or bad end user experience.
Why is good photography so important on a website?
Good Photography can. . .
- Increase your brand trust and quality.
- Make your website look impressive,
which in turn makes your company look impressive.
- Increase Conversion Rates
You, as a client have two main options when considering photography for you site. . .
- Stock Photography
- Hire A Professional Photographer
Depending on your product, stock images can sometimes be the best answer, but if you are selling a very personalised or unique product or selling an experience, getting a professional photographer is usually the best solution.
