I’m going to start posting my cell phone photography on here (under that tag, too, so you can filter if you want).
I know I’ve worked hard to learn my camera, inside and out but a few things have led me to this decision. I had a conversation about cameras with my boyfriend, Will. He was shopping for cameras and we got into a tiff about DSLRs vs. point-and-shoots vs. cell phones. He exclaimed, “well, a cell phone isn’t really a camera.”
We also got into the Canon vs. Nikon debate, but I’m not going to go there right now
I thought about it. It does take a photo. So why not count it as a camera?
And personally, no matter the device used - be it a DSLR, a point-and-shoot, a film camera, or a cell phone - I’ve always worked toward good composition and capturing a second in time.
I don’t think the device medium should matter, really. Sometimes those crappy phone photos turn out better than something from a Canon 6D.
To finish, here’s a photo of the sun setting over Tennessee on Sunday. Will and I were driving back from Cleveland (we saw Nine Inch Nails! Yay!) and the sun just melted into the forest. It was beautiful. Taken with my crappy HTC phone. Instagrammed and definitely no filter.
