Self Restraint - Strategy or Pointless?
May 4, 2013

I recall taking 20-30 rolls of film for developing after a trip and thinking "geez, that's a lot of pictures", but now with digital I come home with thousands of images.  In the last two weeks in Utah, my wife and I took over 8,000, and now we face the daunting task of sorting, purging and selecting (not to mention processing) to cull them down to a manageable group.

Do you use any strategy of self restraint when shooting when you're visiting photogenic places?  I'm wondering if we should just be more selective with our shots (as we were with film).  I love looking at all the images, but it can be overwhelming.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.
