In a sense photography is not limited to a certain portion of the population but it is democratize to a large number of people even from a young age and that is a good thing. We are at the era of Facebook and Instagram, we need to share with the world our life and people are enjoying it, so why it should be a bad thing ? It can fit in the pocket, you can shoot and share it with your friends instantly even if they are on the other side of the world, what a great invention ! Dad’s camera is not for dad only anymore !
However everybody have a smartphone but it doesn’t mean that everybody is a photographer by any means. Smartphones are just some tools like any other camera, maybe a bit limited (for the moment) but still in the hand of the right people you can observe wonderful work (e.g. Aik Beng Chia – please see his instagram – fashion shooting – photo are surrounded with red and they are beautiful !) and will stay like this. Yes, everybody can snap but it is not given to everybody to really shoot !
So yes smartphones are everywhere, people shoot all the time with them but they do not become photographer. The daddy’s snap style is getting larger but the decisive moment is not given to everybody. (above picture is not taken by a smartphone...)
