Post-process: why the smartphone camera changed photography forever


“It’s the creativity with which you take and share the pictures that matters to me, not the camera.”

Like any notebook, it doesn’t matter what you camera you carry. What matters is the context in which you captured the moment.

We, the audience, are not responding to the sharpness, the clarity, the minimal chromatic aberration or lack thereof — the technical quality aspects of this imagery. We’re responding to the honesty; to the realism; and to the intimacy of the photographs people are posting on Instagram, Pinterest, Flickr, etc. After all, we’ve never really seen it before. Or at least, not in such abundance.

Give the people something different, an untold story.
