A lot of people are into photography these days. I myself have been recently bitten by the photography bug and would also like to have a photo blog soon.

    Hey, this is indeed a beautiful collection of themes. Free WP themes just keep getting better and better, and I think the improvements are most noticeable in the area of photography. There are really getting to be some beautiful WP themes out there for photographers. My favorites in the list are FolioElements and Autofocus 1.0.1. Thanks for collecting the list!

    Autofocus is another stunning photoblog theme. It’s easy to use for newbies like me, however it has some layout problems for viewers using IE. It works fine on Firefox though.

    As a graphic web designer , I’m very glad to see that someone thought to post this topic.

    Quite a few people out there just don’t grasp the concept of what all is needed in this industry, and I think also we’re many times underrated
    or taken for granted. Never the less I’m very glad to see that you may feel the same way I do , thanks so much for your blog!

    I tried downloading the Photography theme, but it failed. It says that it’s missing stylesheet. Not sure what that is. Do you know how I can correct that?


  5. Graphire 5 May, 2010 at 12:06

    Hi Anita. Please check the files you downloaded and look for style.css. If it’s missing, please contact the theme owner you downloaded it from and ask for it. Thanks.
