    Oh I also have a question. How many frames do you shoot in a session, and over what period of time? (An hour, 2 hours etc) And how many keepers do you get?

    Depends on the subject, how cooperative they are, etc. A rough, rough average though would be probably 100 frames in an hour or so, keepers about 20-30%, portfolio-quality about 4 or 5 frames.

    Like Shark, for me it depends on the subject, how enthusiastic they are, how scenic the area/architecture is, if the subject has ideas they want to try, etc... I try to keep it under 2 hours, and find that with most clients I'm spending about 1.5 hours. With young kids I feel lucky if I get 30 min before they start losing patience with me. If the parents will go for it, I prefer to schedule two 45 min sessions for little kids. Typically I'm filling a 1 GB card, so that's 90 to 110 photos. I tell the client we'll get 20 keepers, but usually it's around 30.

    Sometimes I get folks who just aren't very comfortable in front of the camera, an hour drags out, and I'm lucky if I get 20 keepers in an hour. Other times I get someone who feels at home and outgoing in front of the camera, and then next thing you know 2 hours has gone by, and I've got over 200 photos to sort through, and I'll show them 50 photos.

    I generally shoot a precise 36 shots per hour. (I still think I'm using film I guess!!) I can generally do about half a portfolio (8 keepers) in one and a half hours. I try to do things slowly - the more though I put in, the better the results. I'm utterly knackered after a photo shoot, like the old adage about the swan... calm and serene on the surface, but going like the clappers underneath!

    A lot depends on what you're doing - if you're going for one shot, then you'll be very very careful with it. If, however, you're trying to do a varied portfolio, you'll be shooting off more shots.

    When working out of the studio as you have done here, I go to a time-tested area (I have several depending on weather/lighting) and make at least three totally different sets of images. So, if I make 7 or so exposures of each situation, I end up with about 20 previews to show. This takes about 20-30 minutes after arriving at the location. I can so this so quickly only because I know just what I'm going to do before getting to the location. If I have to scout a location upon arrival, this will take me more than an hour.

    I do spend a lot of time talking with my subject. In addition to giving me some idea what the sitter's personality is like, the chatter helps to put him/her at ease.

    BTW... were you albe to do any of her with the white jacket and white pants together, or the jean jacket and dark pants together?
