This topic is of particular importance because if you want to make sure that your personal life doesn't mix with professional, you'll want to make sure that your Obligation Friends don't see your party pics.
The first thing you need to do to control your photos is make different albums for different topics. Note that your profile and wall albums are automatic, the rest you can make in the Profile > Photos area.
Once on this screen, you can create a new album by clicking the button labeled as such.
On the creation screen, enter a descriptive name and details if you wish. The location is just something so you and people will know where the photos were taken (Europe, the Diner, or whatever). The important control here is the Privacy option. Just like in privacy control screen, you can select Customize and choose specific groups of friends.
So now my Mom, my sister, and all my real friends can see these pics, but not my Boss, or those Obligation Friends. Piece of cake!
