Listen to a conversation
between the two student editors of a photography magazine called Campus Photo Monthly.
We're in trouble, Barbara.
I don't think we can put together next month's issue.
There just aren't enough good photos.
[Complaining] It's getting harder and harder to put together an issue.
Yeah, and this month is the worst ever.
I don't get it. I mean,
students are submitting lots of photographs, but
I think we've only got fifteen that are worth publishing.
And we can't print the magazine with only fifteen photographs.
Well, maybe we're being too selective.
What if we used photos that maybe aren't great, but-
-but that aren't horrible?
Right. I mean, some of these photographs we get from beginning photographers may not be the best,
but, if we lowered our standards just a bit, we'd have a lot more photos to publish...
Sure, but we'd have to be careful.
We don't want to get a reputation for publishing low-quality work.
you know, maybe we're just publishing too frequently.
What if we stopped publishing every month, and instead, you know, if we just published every two months?
We'd have a lot more submissions to choose from so we could pick and choose and still publish only the good ones.
I guess. But people on campus sorta' expect us to publish every month.
I mean, we are Campus Photo Monthly, aren't we?
