Re: At what events / occasions did you shoot the most images?

I tend to shoot a lot.

This last spring I did a Duane Ludwig Muay Thai seminar that had about 100 participants. I broke it up in to three sections; 1. Before the seminar began just wandering the crowd and taking photos of people meeting and greeting. 2. Action shots during the seminar itself. 3. Group photo at the end.

My goal was to get a few shots of each participant during the "action shot" step. When it was all done I ended up with about 1200 exposures over about 4 hours. I culled through, keeping only what I felt was the very best and ended up with about 800 shots.

Yesterday afternoon I did a model shoot; two wardrobe changes, a couple different locations (within one large location) and shot 221 exposures which can be typical. A lot of the shots were done towards the end when after I'd gotten that shots that are wanted or needed, I hit the model with a kind of surprise "unplanned" thing; a prop of some kind or something. Yesterday it was having her free-flow dance in a field of grass to her favorite music and snapping for a few minutes. Because of the movement several non-keepers, but a few keepers. For the whole shoot there's about 100 or so keepers; shots that we (both the model and I) absolutely love.

I feel more like I do now than I did before ...
