Default making web page titles SEO friendly

I have been researching making the <title> of my web pages better for the purposes of SEO. Sadly, the mistake I have made is I always have the title as:
Code:
 <TITLE>AyrshireMinis.com - a Mini E-Community</TITLE>
and this is true for all my pages.

It seems it is better (for the purposes of SEO and making better sense, haha) to have
Code:
<TITLE>AyrshireMinis.com - Galleries - a Mini E-Community</TITLE>
or something similar to make the titles unique to each page?

Is this the best way to do it? I've read they should be unique, but does this make much difference?

Yes, all of your documents should have a unique <title></title> tag. Failing to do so can cause the a spider to flag your pages as duplicate content which is unfavorable in almost all accounts as it can effect your page rank.
