"My name is mark and i'm an ex-noob.":-( "Well done mark, you're on the road to recovery by just admitting that to everyone!" Can anyone give me a few names of famous photographers? And what they are famous for (technique or subject). Or alternatively, can you throw a few names at these subjects/techniques: Portraiture - Straight forward and standard; Landscapes - Again, ordinary; Alternative; Absract; Black/White; (I realise this is quite a broad category!) Fashion Sports I'm looking for the most prominent names in these fields, not just a list of all known photographers. Thanks for all or anything.
