150 for 5

When I shoot a shoot like this – special hairdos – how many images do I shoot?

As so often.. it depends. I wanted various expressions to choose from, so I shot 150 images to get these 5 hairdos down. Then I selected just 10 (2 for each hairdo) to show the client, including the above and this:

After that, I usually await a final choice to do the final edit on those final choices only.

But do note that all 1590 images were technically good (except 3 blinkers) – that’s the beauty of studio-style shooting (100 ISO, f/5.6, 1/125th sec).
