Please help me find a theme. The official WordPress theme finder is terrible and I'm not sure what third party sites are trustworthy.
I'm looking for something that's clean and nice looking in tones invoking wood, metal and model-making that will look good with pictures of wood, metal and also plastic models. Maybe something with a bit of an antiqued theme invoking old ships, buildings and such.
These photos are usually shot on a black or dark-colored backdrop, so I'm preferring things with light, ivory or white backgrounds. I don't want a graphical header or anything - yet.
What do I need to be aware of as a far as security and other admin/management issues as a total noob? How do I fight spam? What do I do if I get hacked? (This is on a "Fully Hosted" DreamHost account.)
