    It's horrible, there are som many morons out there with cameras pretending to be pros, simply because they can apparently live without money. I saw an ad today for "Very, Very Affordable Portraits!" The persons forgot to mention terrible. So the deal was, for $50 you get a one hour shoot, 200 files on cd with 100 of them edited. So, first thing, who the hell takes 200 pictures on an hour long shoot? That's assuming that the guy is just giving them every picture he took. Or they're taking 400 then editing down. I don't know which one is worse. Portrait sessions aren't weddings, the customer doesn't need tons of photos. They want the few great ones. We need less people giving people a whole bunch of a really crappy product and calling themselves professional photographers. It's cutting the bottom out of the market.

    Action shoot? Perhaps you're just firing off shots while the person is talking, and manage to catch a laugh, a grimace, some kind of GENUINE emotion that can't be planned? Despite your derision, there are any number of reasons.

    I think his point is that taking 200 shots (or more) in an hour is not impossible, but taking 200 shots in a single hour that count is much much harder.

    200 that count in an hour is damn near immpossible even in this day and age.

    well you could do it with a 1D series camera - which ever has the 10fps
    At 10fps its only 20seconds to get the needed number and if you pose them right you could make each shot pretty much count. Of course its going to be one boring CD of shots ;)
