Hi Mike. Few tips regarding photo albums, in case you have not come across these. You already figured out the teaser image option, I find that useful for the purpose you already described.
Photo album behavior in the newsfeed:
Once you edit the album (add pics, annotate, etc), the photo album makes it to the top of the newsfeed. No commenters are notified. To invoke notification, a comment needs to be added to the photo album (I.e, if you want the followers of your album to know you uploaded new pics, post something in the comments).
If you don't want an album to make it to the news feed, simply delete it from it. This action is not reversible. It will stay on your album tab, comments can still be added, but no additional edits will make it visible in newsfeed.
Once the album is created, it is displayed in the newsfeed immediately (sort of). I always try to have my "ducks in the row" before posting an album, so I don't have a fragmented album in the newsfeed. I wish there was a "publish" function for albums.
Cheers, and happy modeling
