How many photos do you take when you’re out taking pictures? 10? 20 or just completely lose track? Alright I can understand if you can’t remember as you’re most likely taking pictures using digital cameras.
So here is a better question, out of all the photos you take per session, how many of those are keepers? Meaning photos that look good enough or with a bit of digital massage can be made into good photos?
For me it’s average at about 10~20% depending whether I took the photos on the fly or just decided to bring along my camera with me as I went out and not something that was planned. For planned events, it’s always higher as I mentally have ideas to what I want while for those unplanned ones it’s usually VERY low.
But sometimes those unplanned times can yield are some amazing results
Like this pic here, I was having dinner at the nearby sunshine food court and the light was simply perfect!
Or this shot I managed to spot while looking for storks to take at an open field.
Or a picture of this stock I took during the time I was in Labuan.
