I thought this would be a nice thread to share any interesting links to the exploration of new photo techniques and articles on how we are taking and sharing pictures in 2012.

This is because I've seen a very interesting article today in the Guardian about camera phones now outstripping compact cameras as the top device we use to take photos. You can read the article here.

Here's an extract:

Even some professional photographers admit they turn to their phones for snaps, with the celebrity photographer Annie Liebovitz describing her iPhone as the "snapshot camera of today". "I'm still learning how to use mine," Liebovitz told NBC. "I can't tell you how many times I see people show me their children. It's the wallet with the family pictures in it."


What do you think? And have you seen any new articles on these sorts of topics out of interest?

Also just to point out there's a feature about how we remember things which might be of interest to you - you can get a 'story of the self' booklet in the Guardian and Observer this weekend. Here's more about it.

Anyone seen soundcloud's new storywheel - great new tool allowing you to create an audio to go along a slideshow of instragram pictures. Is this the closest thing to the original project slideshow of holiday snaps?! More about it here:

There's been an interesting food photography debate taking place on the Word of Mouth blog - the founder of food photo app Platter writes a comeback:
