The Rise of the Amateur Photographer
Hanna Frazier

Hi Hanna,

In my opinion, the professional photographer still gets the shot, takes their time, and goes for the details. And while Instagram and Iphones are making the amateur photographer more “snap happy”, I am glad that they are out there and snapping away. I enjoy seeing the grandchildren doing “day to day” activities that I could not ever get captured correctly when my children were little and the phone cameras make it so much easier.

I also have been photographing my world since I was a child, participating in photography clubs and still shooting with my Cannon Camera. I love it and would not/have not traded it for the phone camera.

I enjoyed your story and thank you for sharing all the great historical info on photography. Thank You! CJ
