Did you enhance the eyes? They are looking a little "done" to me. But she IS gorgeous!

Never understand why people shoot as many as 3000 images at a wedding unless they've been with the couple for about three days!

How many will you present to them and how long will it take you to review, cull and edit? Assuming you shoot in Raw?

Then how are they supposed to select their album shots from so many?

I culled down to about 500. Ofcourse I shot in raw. I had a second shooter, so together we did 3000.

That's what they wanted, thats what they got, thats what they paid for.

They did not pay for 3000 as you culled down to 500.

They did not pay for what they did not see. A 3000 for 500 hit rate would make me question my technique.

+1

When I give them 500 I expect to have shot no more than 700 including duplicates of groups to account for blinkers and turned heads.

IMHO 3000 is machine gunning which often results in actually missing some great shots that are captured by scanning people as they mingle.

Maybe, maybe not. Looks like a good result to me.

You can't be serious that 500 from 3000 is a good result!

I would be seriously questioning my skills if that was the hit rate I could achieve so I stand by my previous comment about machine-gunning.

Sorry, maybe we're communicating poorly. I was assuming that most of those were repeats rather than trash. If only 1 in 6 were useable then yeah, there might be an issue, but if 5 of 6 are good, but the 5 good ones are all the same, then unless you are talking about equipment wear and tear and possibly wasting time, it's not really a massively serious technique issue. Does that make more sense?

Thanks for the clarification - always difficult when we write things rather than have the opportunity to speak.

I agree with what you are saying Often get a few of the same group shot where only facial expressions are different and sometimes pass these on in case the expression is key to an individual's personality (if you know what I mean!)

Maybe 3000 -> 500 is on the high end, but better with too many than too few at least.
