Being such a productive member of the Cochrane community it’s no wonder that the Cochrane Environmental Action Committee didn’t have time to update their website – and early 2000s websites just don’t hold up to today’s standards of web design. Modern websites utilize images and graphics to help draw the user’s attention and break down large chunks of text. Besides the evolving website design trends, there’s more technical aspects like responsive design and readability that have since grown to become website development necessities.
Updating CEAC’s site into more modern website standards also involved photography and Photoshop to clean up and enhance the images. The volunteers at CEAC had a wonderful array of action shots to help bring a personal touch to the site, so fleshing out the site simply required some still and dynamic shots. I took these additional photos in camera RAW format to ensure a high level of detail and then edited and enhanced them using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
