We have never had as many online outlets for photography as we have now.
As a fan I’ve had a lifelong passion for photography, but as a photographer I’m definitely still within Cartier-Bresson’s “first 10,000 photos”. Occasionally I can turn out photos that I’m quite proud of, but I’m under no illusions as to how good the other 90% of my photos are. It’s mostly time that stops me practising the craft. I say ‘mostly’; I think that chief amongst the other missing ingredients is the chance to have good, meaningful discussions with other photographers.
