Posted by on August 4, 2021 in Business, Careers with 0 Comments

For inspiration we take a lot of time to look back at history to refresh past photography trends but here Clickasnap is taking a look into the future and making some predictions you could expect to see for photography. Although these are only predictions, it can be exciting to assume what may come for photographers in the next few years. Whether this be advancements in photography software or changes to the way we take photographs all together. 

An introduction to AI in the photography world

AI or Artificial Intelligence is really beginning to creep its way into our everyday lives. This smart technology will allow for advancements in many industries. For photography, AI is already working behind the scenes in some of your camera’s features. Most of the automatic features of your camera use AI technology, for example autofocus, stabilisation and tracking. In the future the use of AI in photography will certainly increase as it works to simplify photography tasks, making shooting and capturing faster. 

The smartphone takeover

Although many pro photographers today may not be so happy to hear this, the smartphone is sure to complete a takeover in the coming years. As the design and utilisation of smartphone cameras improves year on year, we are seeing many more photographers ditching their DSLRs, mirrorless, film, and point-and-shoot cameras. The improvements in the quality of smartphone cameras in recent years has meant many choose to favour them, for the simple fact they are compact and offer the benefits of connectivity. Being able to share your images instantly provides photographers a simple and easy way to publish their best shots. For those with businesses which rely on the use of social media, smartphones offer an alternative from the long process of having to import and export images.

More competition in the photography world

The easier it becomes to shoot and snap photographs; the more people will take an interest in photography. Of course, this means that many more people will also start their own photography businesses, creating a lot more competition for photographers. Creating both a greater sense of community across the industry but also a greater challenge for photographers to find new clients and stand out amongst the growing crowd. With the rise of smartphone photography many beginners will take this as their opportunity to get into photography. Creating a rise in the number of people interested in photography and giving it a try.

Retro photography rewind

As we move into a more digitalised world, many photographers may look to escape into the past. Choosing to pair old imagery styles and techniques is something people may choose to do for a fun and rewarding approach to photography. For younger generations film cameras and print photography may be something they have never explored as they have grown up in a digital world. Learning this older style of photography can open doors for improving and broadening your knowledge of photography and cameras whilst creating some unique content. This will also help to keep the origins and heritage of photography alive amongst the new generations of photographers.
