i mean when u take 100 pics for example then when u are back home and looking thru the com, there's only 1 pic that you like. i dont mean taking 100pics and hope there's 1 proper photo to share but somehow there's 1 photo that just stands out.

:eek:

I've ever gone for a shooting session, then end up back home when I went through all my photos, found that none could make it, I was so frustrated that deleted all 200+ photos.

very often, never think before you shoot, if you do that your keeper rate is much higher as you antisipated for the shoot.:)

If that day wanna shoot but yet can't shoot, in the end shoot like 50 or 100 shots I might just end up putting them aside and not seeing them again.

If that day got mood shoot, in the mood to shoot, I'll keep all of them.

Of cos, can easily identify which are the ones that I like cos before these kind of serious shoot, will get stomachache. :bsmilie: Stress lah. :bsmilie:

depends on your shooting style, and your idea of what is a good shot right?

i've taken a few thousand in the past year, and there are less than 5 i really really like.

but think about it, how many hcb or ansel adams shots out of the thousands they must have taken do we still look at these days? and i bet their rejects are better than many of our best shots.

many people only started photography in digital era. So gone of the days where you need to think and compose properly before shooting. Today photoshooting is like a probability theory. Shoot more, and expect one or two will come out nice.
