Recently, I have been doing a lot of thinking about how to re-organize my photography portfolio. At the moment, I have all of my best photos in one big lightbox album (see http://paulchrisluke.com/photography/paul-chris-luke-photography/ )
I do this because from what I have seen, users will happily stay and flip through an album until the album runs out. Doing so is easy, and requires only the press of a right/left arrow. However, I have found that when a user is required to jump from category to category (ie portraits, landscape, etc), even with only one click the visiting time shortens. In short, I have found that my users are exposed to more of my work if all of it is accessible with one click. As such, I choose to put my very best work into one portfolio.
So! I sit here wondering, should I subcategorize my work? Thoughts?
