Fall Leaves and a Word on Cameras

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com 

I am quite fond of these photos of leaves and I believe I have one more in the series. I doubt I could have taken this photo in this quality on any phone. As hard as I try, I find phones unwieldy and finicky to take photographs with. I realize that the majority of the billions of photos taken every year are now taken with phones and they are getting better and better technically.  I am always amazed when I read that a professional used an Iphoneto shoot a wedding, a magazine cover, or a TV commercial. The obvious rhetorical question its whether the poem is better written with a Mont Blanc pen than a crayon. So I come back to the finicky business. When you are comfortable with photography, e.g. the F stops, exposure etc. and assuming all cameras provide the same quality of output, the difference between cameras is the ease with which you can get the shot you want. As they say the best camera is the camera you have with you, I would just add it should also be the camera you are comfortable using. I personally believe the future of professional and amateur photography is in mirrorless cameras, because what you see is pretty much what you get (in my experience that is not quite true in phone cameras yet).

  1. probs for the photography! and similar philosophy on smartphone/cams as well. just a few days ago, we wrote about that topic, too. it’s a little bit like the invention of the Colt… like the lost range. 😉
