On getting started with mobile photography

The shift from conventional cameras to mobile photography happened quite naturally for Mika Korhonen.

“When my mobile shots started competing with the ones I was taking with a normal camera — it motivated me to shoot — and practice — on mobile more,” he explains. “I guess the transition happened for me at the same speed that the phones I’ve owned have gotten better.” His go-to phone now when it comes to taking pictures? The OnePlus.

Marcus Lenkcites circumstance as the main reason for opting to shoot on mobile. “I planned a month long trip to New York and didn’t have a camera as I wasn’t into photography at that point,” he explains. “My iPhone was the only gear I brought. And in the end the trip ended up turning photography into a real hobby of mine.”

Valik Chernetskyi— is shooting more and more on his Samsung Galaxy mostly because of the convenience. “Your phone is always right on hand, so it’s easy to capture interesting moments as they happen,” he says.

For Eugene Zaycev, the turning point came back in 2009. “I fell in love with the Nokia E72’s 5mpx camera,” he says. “It was a really big ‘wow’ moment for me.” While he’s now upgraded to a Pixel 2, he still likes that “what you see is what you get” when it comes to mobile photography.

Pavel Nekoranec, shoots on the iPhone X because of convenience and affordability: “I don’t need to invest that much into mobile, equipment, and learning how to use the camera on my phone.”

The differences between mobile and ‘conventional’ photography

Pavel: I see both mobile photography and conventional photography as two different mediums. Mobile also has certain limitations in quality and format, which changes the style and ideal subject matter. For example, I prefer to take urban and street photos on my phone, rather than portraits of people or night photos.

Eugene: A mobile phone is more compact and easier to take anywhere you want and once you see something worth capturing, you just take it from your pocket and shoot.

Mika: I would say that fundamentally — photography is about the same things, no matter which device you use. Even so, I would say the biggest difference for me is that I have a phone with me everywhere I go. Another would be the technical limitations of smartphone cameras — in particular, the lack of control of depth of field. That’s why I like to shoot landscapes and architecture shots on mobile, while I use a DSLR for portraits.

Marcus: If I plan to go shoot with a camera, I usually have a plan on where to shoot, if the light / spot / frame will be good. Whereas with mobile, the shots are sometimes really spontaneous. There’s no time to overthink the photo that you’re going to take.

Thoughts on the mobile photography movement

Mika: I love how photography as a form of art has become accessible to almost everyone.

Eugene: Community. If you are excited about photography you’ll find a lot of friends who will share their passion with you.

Pavel: I think that the current era is exciting, in last two years, the hardware of the new flagship mobile phone didn’t change as much, so the companies are focusing on improving the cameras. As far as I’ve seen, the photos on new phones are amazing quality. And the market for great gadgets and tools for mobile photography is currently booming as well. People can buy and experiment with different lenses, filters, gimbals and so on.
