Just trying to get an idea of what people feel is a lot because I expect we will have different feelings on this topic.

For me at everyday subjects I normally shoot between 30-90 and when reviewing them am happy if I get one proper special keeper.

On the higher side I went to a motor sports event and shot 400. At least 400 is all I have left, perhaps I shot more and deleted a load I can't remember. Anyhow 400 is my top so far.

What about you? where how many and why?


Well, I shoot landscapes and portraits mostly, but in reality probably take similar numbers of photos regardless of what I'm shooting. For landscapes, I'll shoot fewer variations, but I might be inclined to do more bracketed shots and duplicates to be safe (against corruption in case one set gets corrupted). For models, I don't bracket and usually don't take duplicate sets but I might shoot more poses, even if the model doesn't move much or change her/his pose very much just to make sure I get at least a few good shots of each major pose.

I would say that most would shoot the most at sporting events, and probably similar numbers for non-moving subjects. I do tend to shoot more (in terms of quantity) on vacation though, because some of the places I go to I may not come back to for a long time, or ever so I like to make sure my bases are covered there (and it's not like with film where every shot costs you $1 in the end), so depending on the vacation, I might shoot 300-400 frames in a day on vacation, but maybe 100-200 frames doing landscapes all day or model shoots (this all depends on the number of models, or locations I'm visiting of course).
