Yet with all of this new-found technology and incredibly shortened speed of delivery, photography has never been at a lower level of signal:noise then ever before - and, btw, the signal ain't so hot either. In general the "art" of photography is receiving a quality beat-down due to both massive over-consumption and massive over-production of imagery. The heavy majority of which is mediocre.
Remove limitations, receive crap.
I agree 110%. But the only people that truly care about quality aren't the ones that need convincing. So the message is lost
