Smartphones with cameras have become very common. Almost everyone has one. The embedded camera combined with the versatility and mobility of a cell phone makes each smartphone owner think they can master photography. The ability to take unlimited photos also contributes to this mentality. Cell phone users sometimes think they can take multiple photographs and at least one will be good enough. Smartphone photography is so unanimous that seeing a traditional camera is odd. And it is not an overstatement to say that cell phone photography has had an impact on traditional photography. iPhones and Android smartphones can take pictures that are sometimes better than pictures taken with digital cameras with one lens. While being able to take great photos in almost every situation is great, knowing which photos will not turn out well can save a situation.
Trying to create a product photography shot probably won’t go well. Cell phone cameras focus on the center of the frame. A professional camera that can adjust focus is much better for presenting goods online. Also consider that a professional photographer will understand lighting. Someone with experience in the field can properly set the scene around an object to make it look its best, then adjust the camera settings to make the resulting photograph better than something a smartphone could create.
