“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”

― Henri Cartier-Bresson

I now have 10,026 pictures, but, in my case I will probably need another 10,000 more before the worst is over. :lol:

Im probably over the million mark by now - and they still suck !
(my newest camera has 17,000 frames on it - the other two recent ones would both have between 20 and 30 thousand, and still get used every day)

I know you guys are being modest with your comments, but, it gives me encouragement to try another 10,000
Thanks

I think taking pictures "in the museum" exactly means you have pictures "in the museum."

When it comes to the number of shots thing I think the 10000 thing is way out. Maybe if you were talking 35mm film, after all that between 277 and 416 rolls of 35mm, depending on 24's or 36's. All that cost should make you stop and think. Back when I was a teenager I was very lucky to get 4×36 rolls of film to shoot a really big airshow. A grand total of 144 exposures. So I tried really hard to get a useable result with every shot. Of course this meant compromise with that technique. Keep shutter speeds up where possible, after all this was pre optical image stabilisation. I did have the Auto Winder M for my ME Super, so did have a couple of frames a second if I switched it to C. Mostly I just stuck with single shot though.

Now shooting digital I can shoot a couple of thousand shots or more if I want to during an airshow. Now I still try to get things right, but I can afford a much lower hit rate. So I can slow the shutter speeds right down, shoot a burst, and usually if that is three shots the first might have some error induced by the shutter button going down, the last as you come off the shutter button will be the same, but the shot in the middle is far more likely going to be a good one. So now instead of shooting an aircraft at shutter speeds of 1/250 or 1/500 and getting very little or no prop blur, I can shoot at 1/100 or 1/160 and get great prop blur. So now rather than get a dozen or so good shots, I can get fifty or so really outstanding shots.

Things are much different now, than when we shot film. When I shot with my F1 it was unusual to take more than 3 rolls of film with me what ever I was going to shoot. Also when I started ISO (asa) speed was 100-200 on color until around 1974-5 when 400 film came out. With the 400 you were always worried about the grain ( noise we call it now) Back then 3.5 frames a second was outstanding,now days with the 1D mk IV's and the dx if we're not running 10+ fps something is wrong.We thing nothing of shooting at 8000 or up on ISO and 1200-2000 photos at a sport event is nothing, times have changed LOL

Because I lack patience, I bought my first camera used with a shutter count of 9,750 and thereby reached expert status after only 250 shots.

Heck, some guys shoot 10,000 the first week checking out a new camera.

I also used to shoot cine film as well back in the day. I started with Standard 8 and then moved to Super 8 film. Standard 8 was real fun as it was basically a 25' reel of 16mm film, which you shot on half the width, and then turned over to run it the other way through to expose the other half of the film. It was then split in two during the processing, and spliced into a 50' reel. Super 8 was a 50' reel in a cartridge. Either way I used Kodachrome 25 stock. In order to get a full three minutes from the 50' of film though I used to only run it at 9 fps. It was OK, you could also run the film at 12 or 18 fps, but that really reduced your running time, and the film was not cheap. I still remember the address for the UK Kodachrome lab: PO Box 1, Hemel Hempstead, Herts. And the yellow envelope you used to put the exposed film in to ship it to the lab. Cine and the 35mm stills all went to the same lab. Great days when that returned package of slides, in their yellow storage box and card mounts, or the reel of film dropped through the letterbox at home.

Just imagine having to wait a week or so to get to see the results of your efforts. A whole new voyage of discovery as you found out what had worked and what hadn't. Not to mention even remembering all of the shots you might have taken.

Back in the early 70's I had a Praktica 35mm SLR pictured below not sure if it is the exact model number, I remember the days of sending the film out for processing and waiting a week to get the pictures back.
Back then I would have never thought that one day in the future we would become photographer developer and printer, but the day for that finally arrived and that is a good thing.
