How to: Organising Deviations in Features

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 12, 2013, 3:00 AM
Hi everyone,

Some of you may know, I do a lot of features. Many kinds of them, - Urban & Rural related, Architectural and General Photography ones - and I tried out different ways to do it.
In most cases, CSS help you a lot. But if you don't use any fancy codes, I can show you some tips.

Organising by Colour
I think it is the most simple way to make your features more appealing.
You're lucky if you feature Black & White thumbs of course, you don't have to worry about it at all.

It is a bit time consuming and most cases, this is not as effective (like in my case, I collect General Photography Daily Deviations). I'm only collecting them, it's up to the CVs what they select to be featured as DDs of course :)
Sometimes it's random, sometimes it's easy as the deviations has similar colours in them. 
To show you some examples, check out these:

standing out by PeggyArmstrongcome see me by detail24
Illuminated Jellyfish by weaverglenn
Spindle by kim-e-senshope? by LostOneself
A long lonely journey by MenoevilBlack and Blue III by Rob1962
Adrift and at peace by JakezDaniel


I hope you can notice, I always try to group deviations by their colour.
Starting with, for example orange based ones and then changing to another colour.
You can play with it, starting with light colours and then end it with a really dark one.

For more examples, check out these:

Organising by Theme
I believe it's simple and doesn't require much explanation.

Geometric Intermezzo (Part 2) by Einsilbig  wooden curves no.2 by herbstkind


In this case, abstract architectural details

Organising by Shape
Depending on the cropping of a photo or size of a canvas, there are many options available.
You can make features of Squared Thumbs, Landscape and Portrait formats.
