The Best Camera Is The One That's With You (Nokia Lumia 1020)

Old Broken Hinge - Mojave, California
On my other blog, The Urban Exploration Photography Blog, I posted about some abandoned houses in Mojave, California. There were a bunch of photographs in the post. What caught my attention was that the majority of photographs were captured using a cell phone--the Nokia Lumia 1020 to be exact.

Renown photographer Chase Jarvis said, "The best camera is the one that's with you." That's also the title of his book featuring cell phone photographs.

The way I'd put it is: a camera in hand is with 200 cameras at home on a shelf. If it means getting out and creating images, what difference does it make what camera is used? It doesn't make any difference. What's important is the getting out and doing.

As long as you have photographic vision, the camera one uses makes no difference. Any camera is a capable photographic tool in the hands of a skilled photographer, including cell phone cameras.
