The camera phone is always around in any “photo op” moment that we find. Anyone can be a photographer if they are carrying their phone. Events that were once the domain of professional photographers, such as weddings and other special occasions, are often dominated by people recording the event with photos taken on their phone.
Conventional photography is a highly developed art form and profession. The precision of the equipment and the ability of photographers to deliver a high quality product to their customers is well known and the result of decades of evolution of the craft. But today it is possible for anyone to become an amateur photographer using that tiny cell phone in their pocket or purse.
