Apparently, creating and revealing a bunch of work to the world does not necessarily diminish the gems that end up standing out. Many successful artists have *over-produced* and created many duds among their winners.

This seems counter-intuitive to photographers who have heard the admonishments from photo editors to only show your best work.

Instead of so much emphasis on editing as a way of getting rid of duds, there should be more focus on editing as the best means and opportunity for identifying the ones that will really shine.

Being too ‘stingy’ with your editing (i.e., holding back ones you’re not sure of) may actually end up hiding the photos you’ve taken that have the best chance of making a big splash in the world.

What’s really important? To continue to show your work no matter what.
