not decadent when the client has expectations;
and is covering expenses in order to meet those expectations;
and you've invested significant time and materials
in building sets, hiring stylists, models, etc.

Or in the case of architectural work;
you may have greatly inconvenienced tenants, caretakers, managers, 
landscapers, etc.

You basically have one chance to get as close to perfect as you can;
and you're handing at least one sheet of film over to the client.
so bracketing and whatever quantity of film it takes.

No post processing to "get it right."
Had to get "right" in the camera, with lighting, filtration, exposure and
