Mike Johnston at The Online Photographer has a penchant for asking really good questions, and yesterday he did it again in a post titled, Is this ‘A Great Time for Photography’? He seems to be quoting an unnamed friend, who said that it is. Johnston isn’t so sure.
He acknowledges that it’s a great time for taking snapshots, and for sharing, and for our wallets (as digital photography is relatively cheap to begin with, compared to film photography). But “photography itself? Overall, as a whole? Hmm.”
Classic understatement, that “Hmm.”
