Camera phones are not killing photography

Camera phones and quick filters are killing photography! Don’t know how many times I’ve heard and read about this but there is finally a feeling of change in the air. More and more photographers are starting to use the new channels to reach potential customers and also to let their own photography evolve. For me as an amateur photographer all this material is amazing to take part of. Videos, guides and other things just screaming for me to take them up and let myself evolve into a better and better photographer.

I love the new ways that we can take a photograph today and the simplicity in sharing them for friends and family. The agility of small cameras that we are bringing at all times also gives us a chance to capture the moments in our life that would otherwise be nothing more then a mental memory for me alone. We are in fact documenting our lives for the ones growing up, for them to see what shaped us. Our stories for our grandchildren will be using photos and words, not just one or the other.

Point-and-shoot cameras and camera phones have been a natural part of my life for quite some time. I always have the opportunity to record things I see and even though I don’t have my full camera equipment with me I can store a quick moment in time.

Below I’d like to share a few shots which would never been captured if it was not for that I had my camera with me at that specific time. (These are from my personal Instagram account) Being able to share moments like these to the ones I love and cherish makes it all worth it for me.

With this I’d also would like to take the opportunity to thank all viewers for comments and opinions in the past year. Looking forward hearing from you in 2015!

Happy holidays!
