### Blink/Subject Ratios

There must be a formula. Something like the number of people in the photograph, over the number of blinks per second, times the speed of the shutter, equals the number of shots needed to get a photograph where no-one has their eyes closed.

I was photographing nine people this afternoon. There was plenty blinking going on. But I got some good shots too.

No, really, there *is* a formula.
