I thought this was an interesting topic for my first Cake post...
Examining my photo library recently, I realized I press the camera shutter much, much less than I used to. I'm a landscape photographer, so I'm not prolific to begin with. I'm not capturing thousands of frames during a wedding, for example. Although even for me, I noticed my capture rate is really low.
On at least three outings in the past two months, my camera never came out of the bag. There was another instance where I captured precisely three photos. For me, I think this is because I'm "pre-culling" in the field. I won't force a shot. Also, once I've captured a scene to my liking, I'll move on to another subject. And sometimes it's nice to put away the gear and just enjoy being outside. That little thing called "living". :-)
I posted my thoughts in a vlog, too. What about you? As you have progressed as a photographer, do you take fewer photos? More photos? Something else?
