In this case, Seth’s suggestion is so simple and so awesome for our web development clients, I find I’m more than happy to just link to his post and pass along his tip as is;
When you need great photography but find you’re on a shoestring budget, take a trip to Flickr.com. When you get there:
- Use the advanced search and check the appropriate boxes under the Creative Common License section.
- Be sure to check out the HDR images (which stands for High Dynamic Range). If you haven’t seen this photographic treatment in action, you definitely need to see it to believe it.
- Be sure to sort by “Most Interesting.”
There are some amazingly gifted photographers out there, giving you all of these photographs for free … like the above shot of the junker truck taken by CodyR. To really appreciate the photo, you’ll need to click the image to see a larger version.
