Now we have entered the era of "mobile photography", or even specifically" smartphone photography. Evidenced by the increasing number of photography enthusiasts who take pictures with smartphones. The limited ability to capture images on mobile phones does not become an obstacle to work or create.
This also has implications for the increasingly inexpensive photographic equipment (as is known, to learn photography requires expensive equipment). A fantastic photograph can be produced even by a cellphone camera!
Even the President of the US superpower Obama and the President together with the Vice-President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla also did a selfie!
People take food photos before eating, then post to social media accounts. The process of childbirth is recorded through a smartphone camera. Even online media reporters rely on cellphone cameras to take news pictures. Hape even has become a mandatory innate when traveling, even (for some people) have never been out of hand, life seemed empty without the presence of a smartphone!
The ability of mobile cameras (all operating systems; Android, Iphone, Blackberry, Nokia and Microsoft) is even called capable of rivaling digital cameras. Both in terms of resolution, the ability to capture images, and editing capabilities, even has advantages in connectivity and speed of sending photos to the editor's desk and to social media. Which ultimately rests on low cost, easy use, and beautiful results.
As technology develops, mobile phone manufacturers, such as Apple Iphone, Samsung, LG, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Advan, Lenovo, Alcatel, Evercross, Mito, to Nexian are always innovating and presenting increasingly sophisticated camera features. The greater the resolution, the higher the sensitivity, and the more abundant features.
Even now we can find training in learning mobile photography, ranging from composition, lighting, and other photography techniques. Also a growing number of photography and mobile videography competitions.
Before going far into smartphone photography, you should know the following three basic ethics of photography:
- Ask permission when photographing strangers.
- Never distribute other people's photos without their knowledge.
- Obey the rules where the picture was taken, because in many places it is not allowed to take photos.
- At religious rites or other ceremonies, find out or ask what programs are allowed to be photographed
- and others that are ethical and do not violate the law.
