We are always told: “Quality over quantity”.
But what if this was a mistaken notion? What if we should in-fact, focus on quantity over quality?
“Quality” is subjective
Usually when we strive towards “quality”, we are trying to impress others.
Of course you must have pride in the things you create — but consider: a child never cares for “quality” when they’re creating. In fact, they thrive and delight in the quantity (number) of art works they make! And better yet — they don’t even count!
This is what I wish to advocate for:
Focus on making, creating and producing much without counting and “quantifying” yourself.
Image quality or quantity?
I think we as photographers often get distracted and suckered by wanting to constantly upgrade our equipment to improve the “image quality” of our photos.
But I think the better goal is this:
Don’t use the camera with the best image quality, use the camera which is the easiest, simplest and most convenient to shoot a lot with!
Not quantity and not quantity
Ultimately, don’t worry about notions of “quantity” or “quantity”. Just focus on pushing yourself to the max, and beyond.
If you’re not failing, you can probably go harder!
