Shoot Less

Last post of the day I'm sure, and another attempt to make up for my cynical trashing of Woom's site by linking to a site I love. FILE Magazine is lovely, and the 36 Exposures Contest is just for you film-lovers:
But this ease of use and surfeit of images comes with a price. In the analog era, when we had to pay to see what we shot, we were more careful when we took photographs. This forced a discipline that is hard to imagine today. In the words of Stephen Shore, "[Today] there seems to be a greater freedom and lack of one considers one's pictures less, one produces fewer truly considered pictures."

I have a Canon EOS 700 sitting on my shelf at work that might need dusting off..
