Contrasting Sharply originated in October 2006, 2 months before briter:webdesign was was launched. I created it partly because I just wanted to have a photoblog, and partly because I wanted to showcase my photography. Contrasting Sharply has had only one major redesign and name change. The first design placed only one image on the home page, had the sidebar on the right, was called Jylan Wynne's Photoblog and looked fairly ugly.
A lot of the photos on Contrasting Sharply are taken with an Olympus Camedia D-540 ZOOM, with a portion taken by the Olympus Camedia C–180, and all new photos from the 11th April 2008 with a Canon Powershot A720.
