Phoneography, Part 11: Weekend Arizona Trip

Parts 1-10

I took a weekend trip to Phoenix and left all of my cameras behind. Well, all but one: my cell phone camera. 

This trip was a busy work weekend. Days started early and ended late. There was not a lot of time for photography; however, there is always time for some photography.

On another note, a photographer told me last week that he didn't think it was possible to do professional work using a cell phone camera. What he meant is that he doesn't believe that cell phone cameras can produce high enough quality that one could earn money from images captured using a cell phone.

I pointed out that war photographer Damon Winter does real work in Afghanistan using his cell phone camera. I pointed out that photographer Greg Schmigel has a traveling exhibit of cell phone photographs. I pointed out photographer Chase Jarvis' successful book of cell phone photographs. I pointed out an annual cell phone photography contest where the winning images will blow you away.

You can do real, serious, paying photography work with your cell phone. But I couldn't convince the guy, he (like so many others) was certain that equipment is important. In reality, vision is all that matters.

All of these were captured using a Samsung Galaxy S.
