Custom post type, category, taxonomy confusion. (1 post)

    Hey all. I starting a site from scratch and I am confused about custom post types, post formats, taxonomies, categories, etc. I am semi-new to wordpress.

    My objective is to create a site for art. I will have several types of mediums including photography, illustration, drawing, ceramics, etc.

    Some of these mediums might have categories in common like landscape, portrait, etc.

    Would I create a custom post type for each medium and categories cross over custom post types?

    Or do I just create a general custom post type like artwork?

    And how does taxonomy fit in?

    Any help clarifying this would be appreciated.
