Spring cleaning

Recently, someone asked me about throwing away digital photos. It's funny because I shot film for many years and I never thought about throwing away negatives. And perhaps shooting digital I shoot a bit more than I did with film. I don't often trash large quantities of photos from a day of shooting. Perhaps that's the nature of digital.

For me, photography is a series of processes. They all require a slightly different mindset. In the last 3 days I have been going through my photo library and deleting photos. So far I've deleted 2,500+ photos for about 30 days of shooting over a little more than 3 months. While cleaning out I am discovering photos that I forgot about as well! The process of cleaning up afterward is not always easy to get done! Spring cleaning!
