One way you can do it by Time Machine preferences Options. Enter in iPhoto to be excluded from backups and Time machine will not back up iPhoto. Then you will have to drag and drop iPhoto in the other HDD.

In Time Machine preferences, remove the smaller external drive from the exclusion list.

How do I set up my two external drives to save different things? For example, one drive just for iphoto and the other for the rest of my 'stuff'.
I'm using Time Machine for the largest but would like to use the smaller one just for photos.
Your best bet is to use a different app for the photos -- Time Machine can only have one set of exclusions at a time, so switching back and forth isn't realistic.
CarbonCopyCloner and SuperDuper are the most common apps for that sort of thing. They're most often used to make full "bootable clones" of your entire OSX drive, but can be used to back up selected folders instead. I don't use SuperDuper, but understand it's fairly hard to exclude things; CCC is pretty easy.
