You have to assess to yourself now, whether you want to use your website to be a gallery or to be a portfolio. A Gallery is where you just upload photos of whatever without thoughts on anything. A Portfolio is one where you are trying to get people interested in your work for job, recognition or status.

If it’s the latter, if it’s something that you really want to pursue. then Get rid of all the mediocre photos that you have.

Anyway good luck. If you have any questions, let me know
