Subject: RE: [Leica] OT - National Geographic film usage

Jim Brandenburg was motivated by this high consumption of film during his
National Geographic days to do his personal project of taking one frame per
day.  And his success rate was pretty darn high, as we can see in his
"Chased By The Light" book.

I've always heard that the NatGeo photographers consume tons of
film...But don't forget that they are often involved in assignments that
extend for months, and involve travel to difficult and distant places,
places where you can't easily return - or can't return at all - to get
the one shot you missed. I would assume that if you are doing a piece
on, say, endangered gorillas in the mist, you are going to shoot all the
film you can get your hands on.
