    How would you manage your shots if you were being paid for your work. Say $10,000 to get the shot.

    Would you bracket, take a couple more exposures, overshoot the shot.

    I'd be willing to bet you one-and-done guys may rethink your strategy.

    Your reputation and your business relies upon your decision.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    That’s why the pleasure of the creativity you put into photography can only be enjoyed outside commercial constraints.

    I reckon it depends on what you're shooting. Most of my shots include people in them - sometimes fast-moving, sometimes not. Either way, bracketing in these circumstances becomes a right-royal ball-ache. So, going all the way round Barrow to get to Morecambe (as we say round these parts), no, I tend not to bracket.

    I've done both and it makes no difference. You can enjoy creativity i within creative constraints.

    If I were to design a business plan to do this it still wouldn't include bracketing.

    Instead of 1 spare it might be 2 or 3 for each pose/composition.

    I would probably make other changes too, like a full CLA on each of my RB's and their lenses every year.

    Nonsense. Where did you come up with this BS.

    I thoroughly enjoy every single day of my photography INSIDE the commercial constraints (of which there are non.)

    Is there some rule about not having fun and/or not being creative in a commercial setting?

But wait, he may not like this, he may not pay me, will he commission me again?
