Re: What percentage are your keepers?

For weddings, about 80-85% could be considered keepers of some sort - but a lot of them are dupes. I often take about two to three frames of the same shots when I can (expressions, slight lighting adjustments etc.) - so in the end about 1/3 are actually adjusted, cropped, finished, and delivered to the bride and groom - typically in a hardcover table book. I don't delete any images from storage - they are all rated in LR so I can work on just the 4&5 star images after my initial sort. The three-star images are acceptable, but are mostly but dupes, variations, or borderline, the 2-star images didn't make the cut, and the 1-star images are total losses.
