During photoshooting with small formats (i.e MF and 35mm) people tend to do many takes and choose the best one after. But it seems that LF photography needs other aproach: fewer number of takes. But when i look at Avedons photogs i see emotions, composition. Does it mean that Avedon make good photo from the first attempt? Or he shot many takes as MF photographers do?
How many takes do you do during portrait photosession with 4x5, 8x10 ?
