The science of capturing an image due to the reflection of light upon the intended object on which the lens of a device is focused on can be termed as Photography. Does this scientific definition truly capture the essence or the delight of this beautiful form of art?

Photography is a form of art that we use to store our memories, beautiful moments that we want to remember and share that captured happiness with others. Photography is something that depends upon a medium, which is a Camera.

This camera can be anything, right from the Smartphone that we use everyday to the DSLR or mirror less cameras, which are found nowadays with every College going Students to Professional Photographers. The next question of various blog readers will be “Is it really necessary buy $ 500 -$1200 camera for capturing photographs or will a Smartphone camera suffice “or “Why even my High-end Smartphone camera wont capture the same beautiful image as my friend’s DSLR ?”

If you are not an avid photographer (which includes all amateurs, semi-pros or professionals) or do not care much about the quality of the photos captured then surely a normal Smartphone or a compact camera will suffice.

However, if you like photography or appreciate the science and techniques behind capturing a serene or a beautiful photograph then it is better to start with a Dslr.

The following is a short comparison between a DSLR Camera and A Smartphone camera:

1) The ability to shoot in RAW is a major Plus Point.
