I keep seeing phone photographers posting pictures in photography forums calling out photographers who use interchangeable lens cameras…
They say things like, “Who needs a big bulky camera when you can take pictures like this?”
Sure, you can take a great photo with your phone. You can even take RAW images.
My problem is that you don’t have a large sensor nor the glass to compete on a level of quality if you are planning to do more than just post your photos to the internet.
Yes, I remember that ‘shot an iPhone’ campaign. Beautiful pictures, but remember that all of those photos were in black & white. You can do a lot when you eliminate color issues (noise, color depth, fringing, etc.)
So, every time I see a phone photographer brag that they can take ‘professional’ quality images on their phone, I think of this phone photographer meme.
It’s not that you can’t take great pictures with your phone. You absolutely can. But consistency is crucial if you are a professional.
