    As a photo noob, I am wondering how many photos other noobs are taking a day?

    My brother (who is into photography and he get me started) says I am nuts, I take 400-600 a day...although today I have taken NONE, which is the first day I have not used my camera. Its been a really busy day and I dont feel very inspired. Anyways...

    Anyone else nuts like me? :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    I'm averaging about 1000 per month between my D80 and the D40.

    You burned yourself out doing 400-600 per day. :lmao:

    400-600 a day? Yikes. I usually don't take too many photos Monday-Friday since I'm at school for 7 hours, unless of course an oppurtunity presents itself. I save my shooting for the weekends when I have more free time, and even then I can't imagine taking that many shots.

    I could probably pull off that many if I go somewhere interesting...but normally...not even close.

    On an average day that I do shoot...maybe 100...somewhere around there. Depends what it is, though. If it's a model, I could fill the card just to be safe...if it's a brick house...I can always go back later.

    I dont see how you get 600 a day out. Sometimes I have a hard time getting one or, two. For me the weather has benn terrible lately. We have had nothing but snow so, it has been bad.

    At a live band gig, maybe 400-600 a night. Doing PJ work, 24-36 per event. Studio, max 100 per sitting. After wearing out too many shutters, I'm a little more conservative than I used to be. BTW, no noob here, been shooting some kind of camera since 1965. I do shoot a lot more since going digital.

    Oh goodness I guess I am nuts. I take a ton of the same thing with different settings, distances, angles, etc. I also take a ton of photos of my kids and a ton of photos of nothing working on settings and techniques and such. I get only 5-20 "keepers" a day out of the bunch. And I am a stay at home mom so I can pack my camera along everywhere I go.

    Maybe I did burn myself out a little....I think its more that my kids are being nightmareish, I am hormonal :p and so tired and its raining. boohoo

    I think eventually you'll get the hang of how everything works on your camera. You'll know in advance what settings you want and will be taking less photos. It comes with experience. When I first got my d70, I snapped a lot (but not as much as you), but now I probably take about 30-70 on a day that i'm out walking around. If i'm going to some kind of event (motorsports for example) I might take around 150. With my film camera, I might go through a 36exp roll in a few days when i'm using it.
