Smart phones have turned photography into hobby for millions of people

Ishola on Friday said that the advent of smart phones with quality camera features and applications (apps),
has turned photography more into a hobby for millions of people worldwide rather than a profession.

He said that those who had taken photography as a hobby were beginning to give professional photographers a run for their money.

Ishola was speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) ahead of the World Photography Day usually observed on Aug.19.

He said that it was hard for photographers not to be threatened with the invention of smart phones.

“Smart phones have not only changed the way we make photos, but also the meaning and purpose of photography itself.

“ Now you can take quality pictures conveniently with your smart phone.

“Millions of people have taken up photography as a creative hobby with the emergence of smart phones.

“The ability to show your images to the world through such smart phones’ platforms as the Instagram, Facebook has made mobile photography an incredibly vibrant genre.

“A few years ago, I might have taken the world’s greatest photo, but it would be destined to sit unseen on my hard drive and of no relevance.

“Suddenly, thanks to the social media platforms, photography has a purpose. People have started taking more appealing photos that connect them with complete strangers across the globe.

“And the different apps on smart phones have been used by their owners to release enormous creativity in people who might otherwise never have been involved with photography.

“Several mobile photos are snapshots of daily life: people simply face-booking their lives, taking photos of their birthday parties and lots more, “he said.
Ishola, who is the photographer to major modelling companies, however, said that professional photographers needed not worry about the threat smart phones tend to pose to them.
