The essence of any great photo is about the eye, not the gear. Photography is about capturing the moment and connecting with the subject. Nowadays a great composition can be done with that little device you carry in your pocket called the camera phone.
With the creation of the camera phone, we are now seeing more photographs taken in one year than all of history. It’s predicted there will be 7.6 billion people in the world in 2018, and about 5.1 billion of them will have a mobile phone. Let’s say roughly 80% of those phones have a built-in camera: around 4 billion people. And let’s say they take 10 photos per day – that’s 3,650 photos per year, per person. That adds up to more than 14 trillion photos annually (14,600,000,000,000). That's a lot of photos per year!
Technological advances in the camera phone have allowed for capturing the moment and translating that into a photo much easier and quicker in today's environment. Great pictures are still about having a good eye and creating a unique composition but can be done far more easily now that we all have a camera phone with us at all times. After all, the best camera is the one you have with you!
