While this is true, very few of us will ever take more than a handful of photographs worthy of gallery print $, if any. I may have two out of 70,000 clicks in the last 10 years. I was recently talked into a special deal of $39 for a 16X20 canvas print from CanvasOnDemand. After looking through about 20,000 pictures, I was only able to find 4 that I would ever pay $39 to have printed. I have thousands that are worth, to me, the $1.42 Sam's charges for 8x10.

I am not an artist photographer, I am however a top of the line cabinetmaker.
