When did people start smiling for photographs? What is the oldest extant photograph of someone smiling (whether for the camera or incidentally)?

I've started into my first serious foray into amateur photography. The only fully-manual camera I could get my hands on for free is 35mm, so I'm now confronted with a problem that I haven't really ever dealt with before: where to get it developed. I want digital scans of most of my photos, for easy storage and Flickring, and there are a number of corollary requirements as well. [more inside]

I'm going to be in Las Vegas this weekend with friends. Coincidentally, the new ultra-luxe Wynn casino and hotel is also opening there this weekend. The mainstream media has been "prohibited" from publishing photos
of its super-secret interior until at least a week after
the next issue of "Vanity Fair" hits the stands May 4th, since VF got some sort of exclusive deal
with Wynn. But ordinary Vegas tourists--and, presumably, our cameras--will be allowed in starting this weekend. If I take and upload photos of the hotel's interior to my blog or to a site like ourmedia.org while I'm in Vegas, the photos will beat VF by several days and the mainstream media by almost two weeks. If I license the photos under a non-commercial Creative Commons license and won't be profiting from them, would/could I get sued for breaking the media embargo?

At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in the modern art/photography section there's a photo (from 1997 or thereabouts) of a man standing in a hotel room in a rainy day. It's a huge print, probably 5'x4', and is lit from behind. It's not on the Met's website. Does anyone know the name of the photo/photographer?

I'm an amateur photographer, but I'd like to see if I could sell it to someone, somewhere. If not that, maybe enter it in online or local photography contests. How do I get started? [more inside]

Digital fullfilment/Photography Question:
My sister's wedding had a large number of photographs taken by their friend who's a professional photographer, on his high end nikon Digital. He gave them the photos as a wedding gift, and they want people to be able to order prints on demand online.
however, they wanted to see if it were possible to tack on a small fee per photo and have the profit go to their friend.
1. What are some good print on demand sites (ofoto, etc?)
2. Do any of them allow this kind of thing?
Thanks in advance.

What are the best camera settings to use when taking pictures at a concert in a small club? Mine always come out really blurry. Canon S45 digital camera, if that helps any (4mp).

Does anyone know of any good sites that show how to make digital photos look as though they were shot in the 50s/60s specifically the color balance you see on pics taken from yesteryear. [more inside]

Does anyone have any suggestions for an all-in-one photo editing/FTP/weblogging software? I know how to do all the steps manually, but am having a very hard time teaching her how to do it all. Wanted features - photo cropping, auto levels, thumbnail creation, ftp, and hopefully some sort of utility to generate weblog posts with image url and popup code. Does that make sense?

I just acquired an old Minolta 16
along with two rolls of B&W film. The film was in a sealed container with the expiration date marked May '78. Do I have any chance of getting workable pictures out of this thing? And is there something (longer exposure, or shorter?) one can do to compensate for expired film?

I'm thinking of buying the new Nikon D70 digital, Nikons answer to the Canon Rebel. What lens should I get? I want to do travel photography big landscapes, nature, and occasional cultural/people shots. Someone mentioned this 17-35mm
as very good but is that the best for this kind of photography?

Long ago, I recall seeing a link (maybe on MeFi, but I can't find it) for a website that displayed some pretty impressive technology used to bring out the detail from shadows in photographs. I seem to recall that there was an online version that you could use for testing (upload your photo and it would lighten the shadow areas). Does anyone remember this, and if so, do you know the URL?

I like the idea behind photo.net (post photos, then get feedback, votes, etc.), but their interface is so goofy that I can't get into it. Specifically, I'm looking for a place where I can get feedback on becoming a better photographer, not just a pat on the back. What are the best photo.net alternatives?

How can I fix dog "red eye." Well, its worse than red eye, the dog's eyes are completely gone and are replace with two glowing orange spheres. I've read some howtos on the subject of rendering eyes using simple photoshop tools, but that really isnt going to work. Anyone here experienced in digital photo manipulation want to fix this photo for me for a modest fee? Or know where I can get this service done cheaply?
