How many photos do you take while you're at WDW?

I got back about 3 weeks ago and it was the first time I took a DSLR with me. I was there for 8 days and took about 1000 pics. I was thinking that it was alot of pics but it might be low compared to someone else that's serious about pics. I'm interested in finding out how many do you typically take while there?

On my week trips, between 5,000-6,000, sometimes a little more. In comparison, my last trip was, for me, a light trip and that was 2,700.

I end up with about 250 - 400 RAW files on a typical day - more during EMH days.

My DH is the photographer for the family and he usually takes 400-500 pictures per day. He has been know to take more depending on the time of year we go and if we do something special (Christmas decorations, MVMCP, Halloween decorations, MNSSHP, Star Wars Weekends).

I've taken as little as 800 and up to 2000...all RAW images. I'm taking a few less now because now, before my WDW or DCL vacation, I come up with a theme on what I want to photograph. My last cruise was DCL cast members and before that it was reflections and before that it was signs. Of course I always try to get the perfect sunset each night no matter what the theme is. My DW loves sunsets with lots of clouds.

I usually shoot a few thousand for the weekend for when I drive up to play on property.

I tend to shoot 300-500 pictures per day, but then again I don't bring the camera every day. Some days I go to the parks with the intention of just making shots. Other days I go to the parks with the intention of just taking it all in without a viewfinder in the way.

I like to go to live shows twice, once to watch it and once to photograph it. I'm an about 200 a day guy. Cheers Larry.

My last trip (and first with the DSLR) I took around 3,000. But, with shooting in manual that means the same shot with several different exposures, some in color, some in B&W. I take a lot during the main street electrical parade and fantasmic and quite a few during Wishes, even though they are longer exposures.

This was over 7 days at the park and I think I left my camera at the hotel one day.

Out of all of those, I ended up with about 150 that were "Facebook worthy" and an even smaller amount that my wife used for a scrap book and that I printed in framed.

Our next trip (which will be in a few years), will be my youngest daughter's first trip. I don't know if that will mean more photos or less. Certainly don't want to fall into the trap of experiencing WDW through a viewfinder.
