The other night I shot nearly 200 hundred images of the sunset. The sunset lasted over an hour and the colours were changing from red to orange to blue. All with slow shutter speeds ranging from 5 seconds to 30 seconds. Did I end up with a lot of "garbage"? No. I got some that were very similar. I changed my position several times and walked a lot. I had on rubber boots and waded into a river that was shallow. I probably got half a dozen keepers that I expected to get. To get that I was prepared to shoot a lot because the sky was constantly changing and I took a lot where the sun was sinking over the horizon to get the star effect. The nearly 200 hundred will be overkill to some but it was worth it to get the keepers. In the past I have walked away and the light changed for the better and I regretted it. That it is worse than taking too many.
