I’ve done quite a bit of traveling outside the country over the last few years. And you’d say that I was a fool if I told you that I didn’t have a camera on me for any of those trips. Could you image being 10 yards away from a real, live lion in the wild in Africa and not getting a picture of it?

However, I left the camera at home on my most recent trip to Haiti. Why? Mobile photography. With an 8MP camera (that also records 1080p HD video) on my DROID, and with social sharing tools like Instagram and Facebook, I found myself using my phone’s camera to capture and share the images instantly.

What does that mean for the evolution of photography? And better yet, how can we leverage mobile photography and photo sharing tools to help us better tell our stories?
