Before mobile photography was a “thing”, I shot with my DSLR and film cameras. Then, mobile photography exploded and it exploded in a big way. Now everyone has access to a camera, in most cases a pocket-portable one with great apps to process photos. I feel like mobile photography will be around for a while, but lately I’ve been taking fewer photos with my phone and more with my “real” cameras. It’s feels good too. I don’t feel the need to share instantly.
On our last family vacation, I noticed that I was reaching for my camera more than my phone, and once home I found myself doing the same thing. Don’t get me wrong: I still shoot on my phone, but not as much. And that’s ok.
All images shot on a Contax Aria with various expired films.
