Interesting article here saying that the Chicago Sun Times has fired all it’s photographers, and from now is only going to use photos taken by it’s reporters on their iPhones. They’re even making the reporters undertake mandatory “iphoneography” training.
On the one hand it’s fairly sad that such a skilled profession is now beginning to be seen as unnecessary, on the other it’s actually quite amazing that technology has advanced so much that pictures taken on a phone are now seen as good enough for such a major publication.
Makes me wonder how far away we are from having phones with SLR quality sensors and full manual controls. Maybe in 5 years I’ll have ditched the DSLR and will be shooting long exposures with the iPhone 10?
