A friend of mine who is into photography wants to create a photolog to share his past and future photos online. He is familiar with WordPress and didn’t want to simply go with Flickr, so I looked for photolog WordPress themes to suggest him, I thought I would also share it with my readers on Designer Daily.

1. TN3 Gallery

2. Autofocus+
