Previously I had a point and shoot camera (cannon) and because the quality of the photos were not guranteed (due to different lighting situations) and offcourse because I was not a good photographer, I developed this bad habit of excessive shooting. I would shoot several pictures of each seen and sometimes would take photos of useless seen hoping that some of the shoots will be good.
Now this habit has been transfered to DSLR photography. As an example, in my recent 3 days visit to Singapore I took almost 3500 photos! I would say only 1000 of them worth it and less than 250 of them are excellent photos which worth showing them to people.
I see some people have used less than 2k shutter counts on their DSLR after 1 year of owning the camera. Considering that an entry level DSLR (like my Alpha200) has limited life (I guess around 100,000), what do you think about this habit of mine?
BTW I am in learning phase. I am reading 5 photography books I obtained recently and intend to become a professional (I will be a computer scientist, so this will be my professional entertainment).
I appreciate your comments.
