    Yeah, it's too bad new designers don't know them.

    You shouldn't be looking on google images... at least not without expecting to pursue permission to use the images. Google images is NOT a stock site, though some stock shows up in it.

    Very strange. You want someone to tell you how to set up a site so YOU will benefit?
    The Graphic Design part sounds like it will be very important to the success of your site.

    I didn't check the link - are these drawings from photos the artist took? Or someone else's photos? I wonder if there would be a copyright issue if they are someone else's photos.

      While I think the drawings are amazing, it's not really my style. I feel like if you want a realistic drawing/painting, why not take a photo? My mom is of the mindset that it's only good if it looks real. I guess that's why she became a photographer.

      I too have trouble thinking photography is "art". There are technical aspects that make a photo better than others. I feel like they get lucky with good shots. After seeing how some professional portrait photographers work (not just my mom), they spray and pray.

              as my Apple/Mac dictionary says:

              photography |fəˈtägrəfē|
              noun
              the art or practice of taking and processing photographs.

              Modern photography is based on the property of silver compounds decomposing to metallic silver when exposed to light. The light-sensitive salts are held in an emulsion (in color film, layers of emulsion) usually mounted on transparent roll film.

                      Technically, these are fantastic drawings. Personally, I do not wish to drwa like this, but they are fabulous non-the-less.

                      As for Photography not being art...I could not disagree more if I had some method to do so. That's pure garbage. A camera is a medium, like paint, charcoal, or graphite. Saying that it isn't.....very short sighted. I have been taking pictures for a long time, and I consider that some, not all, would be considered art. Now...is a snapshoit of someone's family artwork? I would not consider it a masterpiece, no...But, it is art, period.

                      Look just because you do not agree with an art form or a piece of art does not make any less of a work. Just because you don't agree doesn't change the truth. There are people in the world that do not like abstract art. They thinks the a Jackson Pollack painting was a waste of paint...BUT...some recognize that what their tastes in art does not change the fact that it is art. Personally, I love Pollack and I can see his talent. Just cuz others cannot...not my problem...still art.

                      Bottom line, Photography is art. The camera is like the paint brush. The film or paper is like the canvas. Once you use your talent to create the image...it is art. Until then, it is an under utilized piece of equipment, no matter what that equipment is.

                              I do not. I still have a film camera but after coming back from Costa Rica and using the DSLR more than the SLR, I had extra film leftover...but then it was lost I said I wash;t going to buy film again until I found the ones I already bought but didn't use on the trip. I have yet to find the rolls, which are probably bad now. Though I did shoot some FILM in the Fall or Summer of 2011 using my brother's camera on a photo outing to Longwood Gardens...so funny to click and look at a Black Back on a camera.

                              That said, I didn't realize I Was supposed to make up my own definition, I was merely using a definition I had at hand.

                              this is making me think some and I will write something more later...gotta work some now.

                                I still use Wet film especially T-MAX B&W although they aren't going to be producing anymore I have a case of 50 rolls left. Will be using sparingly, I happened to buy a lot of professional quality canon pro level analog film equipment when the pro photographer went digital it was a steal.
