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 ?
