Re: What's Your Keeper Rate?

I have taken 5009 pictures since i got my D90 about 5 months ago and about 15 to 20% are keepers. Defining keepers as the pictures that I would publish (e-mail or prints) to friends and family. Thats 1000 pictures.

Took the grand-kids to the park yesterday and ended up with 105 pictures. 19 keepers. 18%

Went to the everglades this past winter, took 135 pictures, 20 keepers 15%.

Based on my definition of keepers, i would say 15 to 20%.

If you define keepers as pictures that are not blown out, i would say 80 to 85%,
and there is no way i would consider myself anywhere near a professional; just a
different standard.
