It’s everywhere anymore

Photography evolved from a mechanical process of installing a film into a camera to a more touchless process of using a camera built with a digital sensor that captures the incoming light to create a file on a storage medium. The transition from film to digital sensor started to happen in the early 1990s. Decades ago. I’m fairly slow to adopt so did not get my first digital photography camera until 2001. My first pictures on Picturelongmont were shot with my new Olympus CAMEDIA C-700 Ultra Zoom with its 2.1-megapixel sensor. Around that same time, they started to put a digital camera into every phone. Decades later, everyone has a phone with a fairly advanced, fixed lens digital camera and equally advanced AI software processing engine to go with it. I don’t know if people actually care about photography or not. It’s just a thing that is everywhere that everyone uses to make pictures of themselves for their friends and family.
