Six Reasons to Enjoy Cell Phone Photography

Some people call it mobile photography.  Others call it iPhoneography, a name I can’t stand.  Yet, I’ll give six reasons on enjoying photography with your cell phone.  Some reasons the reader already knows.  Yet, other reasons they may not have realized.

1. Convenience – No more worrying about forgetting your camera at home.  Because it’s on your phone, you now have the opportunity to photograph anytime you want.  As you drive home from work, you notice the beautiful sunset.  In the past, your camera more than likely would have been home.  Yet, because it’s on your phone, you now can easily photograph the sunset.

2. Easy to upload to Internet – As of this writing, you probably own a Facebook page.  After photographing the beautiful sunset, you can easily upload the photo to Facebook and show your friends.

3. Easy to bring into nightclubs – As many establishments ban cameras, they rarely ban camera phone photography.  With so many camera phones out there, how could they?

4. Forces creativity-Many times, I enjoy a creative challenge. How does camera phone photography challenge me?  For one, you don’t have a zoom lens.  (Do not use the zoom on your phone.  It sucks and gives a shitty picture.) Now, I definitely have to move as close to the object as possible.  Try doing this with a butterfly and it might fly away.  Yet, I did manage to gain a butterfly photo.  Another challenge is photographing people in ambient light.  Because it causes red eye, I hate using camera phone flash.  Like I mentioned earlier, I prefer using light already provided.

5. Some things are easier to photograph with a cell phone-I enjoy doing close-ups with my phone more than I do with my DSLR camera, especially when it comes to flowers.

6. A cell phone doesn’t attract unwanted attention like a camera-Any other camera encourages folks to steal from you or mug you.   During evening walks, fear of being mugged is why I prefer photographing with my cell phone versus walking around with a camera.  A camera attracts thugs.

Because of the phone’s limitations, you probably won’t create masterpieces.  Truth be known, many folks with professional cameras don’t create masterpieces either.  Still, limitations should be your last worry for enjoying cell phone photography.
