I have been in the camp of keeping every photo I've every taken. The result is I have over 500K photos taking up about 11Tb of storage. My backup strategy is a mess because of the amount of data. So I'm considering reducing the number of photos, only keeping the ones I've selected from the shoot.
For a typical shoot I will take 1500 photos, then come home and narrow it down to 100-125 keepers, and then further narrow that down to 1-10 that get edited and published. So there are a lot of photos there that will probably never get looked at again.
Logically I can reason that I should just delete them and reduce my storage needs to only 10% of what I currently require. But that is so against my nature that I'm having a really hard time making that leap.
So what do you do? Keep everything? Or delete the majority and just keep a few?
