Quote: “Photography has no rules, it is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved.” – Bill Brandt

Thought for the day: 10,000 hour rule or?
It has been stated that to become a genius you need deliberate practice for 10,000 hours. And various studies claim that the 10,000 hour rule is overstated.
Another story says that an infinite number of monkeys banging on the keys of with an infinite number of typewriters they will eventually produce all the great works of Shakespeare.

What about in photography?
Photography consists of two parts, the technical (is the picture exposed right, is it in focus. etc.) and the artistic (is the image interesting). You can use autoexposure and autofocus and that will solve the technical, at least for many images. But the outliers that don’t submit to auto-auto may be more interesting. And the artistic?  If you take 10,000 pictures a year than x% will be interesting.  If you carefully take 10,000 pictures a year then x will be larger.  As you get better over time x should get larger. And if you take risks, experiment, test, get feedback x will improve even faster.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
