With a recent statistic reviewing Instagram as the most popular app on people's phones, this recent 'Is Photography Dead?' infographic outlines the popularity of mobile photography vs. regular photography. An approximate 3.5 trillion photos have been taken since the first photo 185 years ago.

In 1826, the first picture was taken and since the evolution of the camera has taken off. These pictures were put onto print, however now a staggering 300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook everyday. Every second of the day, 26 photos are uploaded to Instagram. Forty-two percent of the Tumblr world is comprised of photos alone. Digital photography has become a fascination as it is easy to share and makes it easier to view all your photos.
