DeepFocus is a slick new portfolio theme that expands on some of our previous gallery themes such as ePhoto and eGallery. Try out the Demo site here. Now you can turn your WordPress blog into a fully functional online photo gallery while still maintaining all of the features of a normal blog. Along with the gallery layout, DeepFocus comes with a robust blog and CMS-style homepage as well, making it an amazing solution for artists/photographers looking to build an online presence. Photographers will also be pleased to hear that photos are no longer cropped on post pages, making the theme acceptable for both landscape and portrait images. Generally I think ElegantThemes did a great job with DeepFocus, but they also have a huge set of other good looking WordPress themes and their gallery is worth checking out if you are looking for a new theme.
