Interesting article over at Black Star by Talbert McMullin on the future of professional photography. McMullin is a photographer who specializes in history and historical architecture, and he makes the argument that with today’s digital cameras, any “moron with a good camera can shoot and shoot and shoot, and eventually get a prizewinner.”
Photography is a numbers game, in that only a certain number of your shots will be professional quality. The more shots you take, the more professional quality shots you will get. This means that any moron with a good camera can shoot and shoot and shoot, and eventually get a prizewinner.
It’s written tongue-in-cheek so don’t take his call to action too seriously.
