How many shots did you take?
I returned after the 2-day event with 4 memory cards from 2 camera bodies
containing 2200 images totaling 12 GB. After editorial selection and
post-production processing, I released a curated set:
52 shots as highlights,
44 supplemental shots,
33 duck derby shots
18 in Lakeside Country Clogger series
9 in The Swooners series, plus
15 presentation collages.
Total: 171. They actually represent about 220 shots, as many released pictures contain insets.
How many megapixel? (not
how I'd frame it, but it preserves the wording
The raw camera files are 18 megapixel. My final releases for this project are
in 2.1 megapixel 16:9 aspect ratio 1080p standard. There are 4 generated previews with lower resolution. A select
few shots are also made available in original resolution to the
organizer only, upon request.
Why so many pieces of camera gear?
Actually I didn't carry that many:
2x APS-C bodies
3x fast lenses (f/1.8
1x GN58 HSS eTTL flash
small 12"x12" softbox
That's my basic event coverage configuration. They're
just conspicuous on a harness & waistbelt system, versus
packed into a camera bag. With this setup, I have full
artistic freedom and plenty of redundancy.

How much do they weigh?
On day 1: 17.3 lbs* of photography gear, excluding phone, watch, water bottle & clothing items.
Day 2: reduced by 1.2 lbs
Why is there no coverage of the car show?
It's at a separate (nearby) venue and only during day 1.
The long gap I had between high priority events & planned
meet-ups occured when I was at the extreme wrong end. I
decided to skip it this year, as I have already covered many
of them in years past.
