    while i appreciate the information about "paid gigs" / "weddings"
    that is a little different than shooting for oneself which is what i was
    really asking about. it is obvious that when working a
    weddings or events, you will shoot what is needed
    and i agree that today's wedding market ( as well as commercial market ) is sort
    of crazy, but commercial / paid work got away from the general gist of this thread

    what i was aiming for was personal work.

    do you hold back ... or not.
    i realize depending on the format it is expensive to expose extra sheets ...
    but if you are shooting LF or ULF chances are you have extra sheets with you
    ( i know i do ) ... will you expose them on a whim ?

    Since coming to Switzerland I have become a lot more selective and conservative.
    Over-the-counter film can be very expensive if one is not careful (like $10.50 for a 24exp roll of FP4+) and finding a place (nearby) that did C-41/E-6 without complaining (and within 2 weeks) was a chore.
    Bulk film (my mainstay) is also expensive, and if I order from an EU country I get hit with taxes that drive the price up even more.

    On the bright side, all the places I've been to that sell film have plenty of Ilford in stock.
    Those who know, shoot film

    A man can only sell so many body parts
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
