Exposure and Elepath turn photos into a story

Supposedly a picture says a thousand words, but if that isn’t enough then perhaps this cloud-based service for photographers can help

Posting photography to social networking profiles or even instantly beaming new snaps to cloud-based repositories is a popular and recent phenomenon. However it is very seldom that these images are  fully explained or  even narrated.
Aiming to change this is Exposure, a subscription service that facilitates the building of photographic stories, weaving in sections of text. This promotional frontend is a refined doorway for returning members and those looking to sign up, detailing the tools on offer. It’s punchy with big, lush photographic examples positioned against white sections containing a smattering of text. Overall it’s perfect for the  modern, ‘gallery wall’ feel that resonates within a more artistic user base, and is also conducive to a consistent look across tablet or phone.
“Exposure was built by a focused two-man team,” explains designer Luke Beard. “Myself on design and front-end development and Kyle Bragger handling engineering. Very few hours were spent in Photoshop in terms of the product’s design, so I have maybe two PSDs for the entire interface. Being a designer this heavily involved with the development of the product meant we could iterate extremely quickly, releasing features and fixes rapidly. SASS and HAML have been a huge part of the process for me and, coupled with working with an incredibly talented engineer, has allowed us to build something we are really proud of.”
