I'm sure that a lot of professional photographers have had this complaint since about the time 35mm automatic cameras became so easily affordable that everyone had one. I'm just as certain that about the time disposable cameras became supermarket point-of purchase impulse items that these same professional photographers wanted to pull out their own hair in frustration.
The reasons for the frustration of course, on the surface, seems to be that the need for a professional photographer becomes more and more limited when amateurs can point and shoot.
However, the more serious situation that lurks underneath is the continual degradation of professional standards.
Now before I incur someone's wrath, let me point out that I'm not saying that professional photographers are lowering their standards. Rather that we as the consumer are lowering our standards for what we will accept.
