Inquiring Photographer: Smartphone’s Camera/Video Features
Inquiring Photographer: How do you use your smartphone camera/video features?
Melissa Andujar, 26, a secretary: “I take so many pictures of my six-year-old daughter. I have about 3,000 photos and videos. I use it all the time to capture every moment and then I upload it to Instagram and Facebook. It’s a way to share special moments of my daughter with friends and family.”
Aubri Smithe, 28, case manager: “I use my phone for everything, to the point that I run out of memory. It’s like I am a photographer and I want to record things I think are beautiful. I like to use my camera to take pictures of my food for Instagram, share pictures on Facebook, and make video calls on Skype and Tango. I don’t need a digital camera because my [smart]phone does everything.”
Deborah Jackson, 44, teacher: “I like taking selfie with my students and photographing different projects and events we do. Sometimes, if I am eating something that looks absolutely delicious, I take a picture of it and share it on Facebook. I own a small digital camera, but I rarely use it because my phone is always with me and easier to use. I recently used my camera to take pictures of a breast cancer walk we did. We all wore pink with ribbons and it was beautiful. I am glad I had my [smart]phone to capture that.”
Brian Gerringer, 23, security supervisor: “I use my camera to take pictures when I am out with friends, parties and concerts. I used it when I saw Jay Z in concert for his Magna Carta tour, and when my favorite song wasn’t playing I was recording and taking pictures of the show. I upload my pictures onto Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. I also text pictures to my friends.”
