Re: Concerts are hard to shoot sometimes.

My brother (who use to shoot in college) said the same thing, Edit, edit, edit.....

He said instead of 100 photos, I should have 30-40, unless the artist or venue is wanting all or most of the shots....

Re: Concerts are hard to shoot sometimes.

I did two Senior shoots and a wedding yesterday, yeah I know I'm retired.  I shot around 500+ on the two girls. I shot about a 1000 at the wedding.  I had a camera in my hands for 11 hours.

It will take me all week to edit them. Coarse delete, then fine delete, then dups delete.  Nobody wants to see the same photo over and over.

 

Oh, did I mention the car show afterwards?  A couple hundred there!

And a caveat that applies specifically to weddings: You don't dare accidentally discard the only picture that includes the bride's sister's husband's mother. As sure as you do, somebody will notice.

Back in 2010 when my son got married, in addition to the usual public wedding album, dozens and dozens of exclusive photos for the bride and groom, the photographer turned over a CD with hundreds of shots he took the day of the wedding, my son said.  I guess he just ran a batch job overnight to generate JPEGs, and burnt it to a disk..

 

The files on the disk were at significantly reduced resolution than the main [very printable] photos, though.  The CD files were the ideal size for posting on social media.
