[all this is paraphrased] For Superbowl 38, Sports Illustrated shot 16,183 digital pictures shot in Houston's Reliant Stadium using eleven photographers over a span of six hours. All that to gain a handful of photos for their magazine. What's the lesson? Excellence comes through volume. The way to take good photos is to take many. The way to write good essays is to write many. The way to preach good sermons is to preach many.
