Purge

I've mentioned before that after I post a set I'll revisit it periodically and just kind of slim it down - get a little harsher and pickier and remove some images. It's easier with some distance and you'll also get situations where I was really excited because I got some cool lighting to work but three sets later I'm already doing it much better and the old ones don't quite have the appeal they did when new.

I also periodically move entire sets from the main image page to the archive, and sometimes remove a set entirely although that's been pretty rare. But you know what, it's time to pick up the pace, and over the last couple of weeks I've kind of been poking at this - moving or removing a couple of sets here or there and it's added up to quite a few sets. This is mostly stuff from late 2003 to early 2005 with a couple of sets that are more recent.

One thing I did to make it easier on myself is to make a little odds and ends page that you can get to from the archive. It has 1-2 shots from a bunch of shoots that I like enough that I wouldn't want to toss the set. In some cases they have nostalgic value (like there's a picture from each of my first two outdoor shoots). So this lets me get past that issue.

I think I'm done with this pass on moving things around (or mostly anyway) but I'll probably keep poking away at trimming down some of the sets that I haven't gone through lately. Feel free to give me a shout if you notice something broken, and it's still broken after you wait a minute and reload the page (address is on the sidebar to the right).

The advantage to you? It's easier to find the good stuff.

I'm also still working on Miette's pictures (the 27th model shoot of the year) and I have one set I'm going to do a little retouching on and relaunch - more on that later.

This is perhaps also a good time to remind people that my oldest two books will be retired Jan 1st, 2009.
