Matt Kloskowski posted a commentary about LR, storage space, and big catalogs. The issue of large catalogs in LR and a gazillion photos spread over stacks of DVDs and BRs or possibly several external harddrives is a problem many of us face. Many of us face it with Photoshop, too. Do you keep everything and have more and more to try and keep organized? Do you "show discipline" as Matt suggests and throw away many shots that have one or more problems?

I found this link in a blog entry by John Beardsworth. Working Photographer is a blog site for Jim Richardson. He's a forty year veteran of editorial photography, and that's the focus of this site. You'll find some excellent photographic work, What's really exciting about Jim's site is the detailed descriptions between each of the frames he shares. There are also some provocative essays, too.
