"The thing with digital photography and the Internet is that anyone can be published. Anyone can post something online. That’s why I always want to have something in print; otherwise it wouldn’t hold any weight for me. You don’t have to go through much of an editing process, other people didn’t have to make decisions on your work: “Is this good enough? Is this sharp enough? Is this well-lit enough?” You know? With a magazine, only the best shit gets through. If you can do that then you’re a real photographer. Any idiot can post some Instagram photo and put a filter on it. That doesn’t make you a photographer."-- @davechami 🗻 Legend in the making. Deaflens.net
