How many photos did you take in the entire 2018?

2 years 9 hours ago #632604 by Jeanne Merlo
I was just looking at total number of photos I had taken and then looking at each year.  My photos I took in 2017 was 17,441 and last year was 3,872.  Big difference! 

Do you ever compare your shooting stats from year to year?

Salut Jeanne!

The question is rather strange as I see it. I don't ever count
the number of shots taken but judge my performance by
the count of keepers.

From a year to the following, the gross revenue will say no-
thing of my performance but how the market was, really.

One thing I noticed though. The more experienced I get, the
higher the count of keepers even if I shoot a lot less frames
to produce them.

G'day Jeanne

I'm having a bit both ways here - your thoughts plus NS's feedback :)

I know from the frame count how many exposures I have made - somewhere around 16,000 but that's pretty irrelevant as much was shot on burst as birds and other stuff needed burst to get the 'best' frame

For the keepers it's a "who-knows" as each time I return from a shoot and evaluate my images - sometimes I keep zero images, other times I keep 50% ... but mostly I keep around 25% of those camera exposures

I then reselect the best of the keepers for display purposes - prints around the apartment and a coffee-table book of images - and that group is only a few hundred images

Hope this helps

I couldn't say, because I delete a lot of them now. I don't keep images that have no value...

That said, I have just over 21,000 left.

I'm going to guess under 20,000k.  I had checked a few months ago and I saw a difference in shutter counts on my camera that was 16,844.  So, I would think close to 20,000.

Not a clue.  Alot?  

Seriously, not a clue.  If I were to guess, I would say easily on the other side of 20,000+

You can upload NEF files to a website to get the shutter count (myshuttercount.com, e.g.). You just need images from Jan 1 and Dec 31. Photoshop used to show that EXIF field, but last time I looked I couldn't find it.

Me, all of my images are in LR, and you can filter by capture date. So, click on the top folder, be sure that images from subfolders are show, then filter. The count is right there.

Don't keep track of that, never cared to be honest.  Man I hope that doesn't sound rude.  It wasn't meant to be!  ;)

No where near enough!  I was just telling my wife on Friday that last year I feel I didn't get out as much as previous years of shooting.  So I'm working on a schedule to get me behind my camera more for 'me' time for this year.  Not paid gigs, just me getting out behind my camera enjoy photography.

As a job I search for and shoot locations for the film industry.
I work mostly on commercials, so it is numbers they are after, so less driving more shooting than features.
I shoot anything from 150-600 frames a day, but I am very seasonal bound, so lot less work in winter. 
The photos I shoot for myself is getting less every year.
Just less inspired as I am getting older.
That feeling of "been there, done that."
I've been behind a camera as career for 37 years.

Honestly I don't keep track of how many photos I take per year, monthly or weekly. The only time I might be aware of the number of shots is immediately after a gig, when I'm going through photos to filter out the ones the client will get.
