10 Predictions For The Future Of Photography

Here are 10 exciting predictions about the future of photography that will get your imagination racing.

| General Photography


The world of photography changes so quickly that it’s sometimes hard to keep up! I mean, if someone told you 10 years ago that you'd be taking really good photographs with something you make phone calls on you'd have probably laughed but here we are, in 2017, with several major brands adding more and more pixels to their smartphone cameras

But what does this mean for the future of photography? Will we one day put cameras down and pop a 'wink' triggered contact lens in our eye? Or will drones be the go-to method for capturing images? Our friends COOPH have asked this very question and have come up with their own 10 interesting predictions on the direction photography. 

Their predictions include stronger sensors and smaller cameras which, with the way technology has gone so far, are pretty certain bets but they also mention cameras becoming more intelligent so they can capture images automatically by reading changes in your brain activity as well as new methods for powering our favourite DSLR, mirrorless or even compact camera

For me as an amateur photographer and by that i mean someone who does'nt get paid or demand payment for the images i capture, the beauty of photography is and has always been, to be able to get out and shoot whatever i do.Always remembering that photography itself is secondary to the beauty that surrounds us, and if we capture just one image, whether its time with friends, a sight not seen before,or quite frankly whatever.... in this lies the true meaning of photography ....... As for the future well i'm sure the pixels will get larger, the sensors better, and the cameras finer.... but the same feelings that have driven previous generations to take up photography will be very much the same as before, and all the new technology constantly changing as it does will be inconsequential to what it means to be a photographer.
