Four Reasons Not to Delete Pictures During a Shoot

I recently attended a photo expedition organized by my local photo club. We went on a boat ride to take pictures of Florida’s Sunshine Skyway suspension bridge. As we approached the bridge at sunset, I saw several people taking shots, then chimping through them and deleting some. As the bridge got larger, its lights became more brilliant. They were missing shots.

I had seen photographers do this before.

Don’t copy them. Never delete pictures during a photo shoot!
