Photography Is Not Paintball
If Photo was Paintball, I bet I would have won this round.
Is it enough to spontaneously hit the shutter as the mind decides that a subject has photogenic qualities? Following that enter the machine gun approach to photographing - shoot the subject and get a few more shots in there that might be better. Or as camera tech gets faster, spray the image area with multiple shutter activations and pick later. That is, quicken the mechanics of picture taking and thus improve the chances of getting a picture.
But as we all know - more pictures does not mean better pictures.
