Round 1, Day 19 of 100 Days of Code was a big success with the completion of the Sparrow Photography portfolio website.

Because of this, something kind of amazing happened. I ended up with a final design that was grayscale and I absolutely love it. I’m sure you could tell by the MysticMail App Landing Page that I love color. So, for me to intentionally omit it, it is actually kind of a miracle. I think the end result is a really classy, sophisticated design, where the photography itself is the primary focus and everything else is just in the background.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5158″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_outline” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]

Image Modal Window

Rather than linking to individual portfolio posts, I decided to create a modal that pops up when you click on an image, showing a large version of each photo.

I used jQuery to find the source of the image, save it as a variable, then input that into an image placeholder inside the body of the modal.

$('#imageModal').on('show.bs.modal', function (event) {
     var imageSource =$(event.relatedTarget).attr('src');
     $(".modal-image").attr('src', imageSource);

Each image in the portfolio follows this pattern:

<img class="portfolio-img category" src="source" alt="" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#imageModal">

I also added CSS to show a zoom-in cursor when you hover over an image, so the user knows that an action can be performed.

cursor: zoom-in
