I'm not a paid photographer and I'm not looking at going into it..but sometimes I get asked by friends to shoot some events and gatherings for them..otherwise photography for me is just capturing moments on holidays/special occasions or if I feel like it..walk around and see what I shoot..
My question is this..let's just say shooting an event..out of say 200 shots only 120 are useable..so I'll do some light editing for the 120 and pass them on to my friends..question is..do you guys keep the 80 not useable ones? Or do you keep all the shots even after you have burned them unto DVDs and pass them on?
Sometimes to get a nice photo you take 2/3 shots..and choose the best one to edit and develop..do you still keep the other 1/2 that you don't use?
I shoot mainly in RAW mode so you can imagine the photos taking up alot of space..i truly ever use like 60% of the shots i take..please bear in mind I'm asking in the capacity of an avid amateur shooter and not one who does this to pay the bills..I understand that if you are paid you prolly wanna keep everything..what are your thots on this? Or what do you personally do to those extra unused photos?
