No in My view...it made photography more popular
That's like saying the Mona Lisa is cheapened by MS Paint. Having new ways to take pictures doesn't diminish either the quality of good photography, or the skills of good photographers. It does flood the Internet with bad pictures, but having a fridge full of finger paintings doesn't lessen the value of a Picasso.
It’s different. We can’t get the art of photography only from a cell phone camera because it’s designed not for capturing images but for calling. A cell phone camera is only an additional feature to catch a customer’s attention. For some people who don’t really understand about the art of photography, taking pictures is easy because they just click capture without measuring an angle of an object.
I disagree; I think it's been heightened by the usage of cell-phone cameras. Now more and more people have access to photography! That's fantastic for the field!
