You are so right, the ability to keep in touch with dear ones across the world is priceless.Everyone’s a photographer now. It’s has taken a lot of the joy out of it for me. When we went to Redfish Lake with the family I took a lot of photos with my Z6. The kids all used their iPhones and posted photos every day. Their photos were all fabulous and captured some great moments. Of course phones have limitations but if a person has a good eye for composition and light the gear used doesn’t make that much difference if you have the focal length you want to use, IMHO. I’m glad I can share photos here with people who appreciate the difference good gear makes.
edit: Just saw this cute photo on Instagram that my daughter took with her iPhone XR this morning. It made me smile and is a really nice photo regardless of the equipment used. I’m grateful she has that nice camera in her phone so I can see this little guy on a regular basis.View attachment 1646545
