Paper Abstract

For many photographers today, mobile photography is photography. According to statistics available on the photo-sharing site CrossRef


, over the last year the most popular camera used to take photos on the site has been an Apple iPhone. In fact, during the summer of 2012, the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S occupied the number one and number two spots. The success of mobile photography perhaps goes hand in glove with the rise of social networking sites. Mobile photography has enabled any individual with a cell phone (the ubiquitous mobile camera) to quickly and easily share visual images of their lives. Mobile cameras are cheap, small, lightweight, and connected—pictures can be taken anytime and anywhere—and shared immediately.
