I’ve been contemplating whether or not to use a gallery script or use a weblog tool to publish photos. I really like the photolog style of publishing if it can be organized correctly, whereas a normal gallery script doesn’t give me some of the nice features of a weblog tool. I’m wondering if I’m looking for too much in one or the other?
I look at sites like Chicago Uncommon and really enjoy that setup, but I would rather use something other than MT… since I haven’t used it.
Here’s a scenario:
I’ve started to do a lot of event photography (weddings, celebrations, etc). I’ve created a new domain in which the people I work with have the ability to say, “Go here to view our photos.” But I want it to be more of a documentary type style where people talk about the photos I take for them, so the weblog tool becomes a nice feature (as well as having the ability to rss all the info).
My thinking is to separate each event/photo set into different blogs which would allow me to refine the catagories of the photos I take. Like for a wedding, I could separate “getting ready”, “the wedding”, “the reception”, etc. If I could attach addition information (catagories: weddings, date) to that and have it all reference to a main “central” area where it could catagorize the information in the other separate blogs… Or do I setup one blog, then separate by just the event (less refined) and date?
I’m just looking for input and any suggestions as to my choices.
