I did a beach shoot at Newburyport about two weeks ago. We took over 1000 pictures, and he sent me a CD of the raw images to pick which ones I liked. This probably means about 5 pictures, maybe 6 or 7 if they are REALLY good. Because the fact is that not only will he be reluctant to edit so many, but I will probably only use 2 or 3 at most for my book.
Gah! That took me about 5 hours.
