I traveled to Vietnam with just my phone serving as camera. I think it performed reasonably, with some patience to learn the settings

Using reflection:


Panning shot


Using existing objects as frames

Hmm... In my opinion, phones are handy but the cameras on them were not really up to scratch for commercial work... until maybe 3-4 years ago. Cramming pixels into the small sensor on phones made the pictures hard to be usable without proper edits. With more phones having dual or even triple sensors, image quality has improved in leaps.

Digital images come with the convenience and cost savings, but at the expense of caution, as the tendency to "spray and pray" makes it less likely for amateurs to want to learn about framing, golden ratio, lighting, etc...

I remember taking just 3-4 rolls of pictures on film per year, as a student. But each one of the pictures were memorable to me. But now the food and trivial pics I post on social media probably exceeds 50 in a month. I still have my film cameras... but not much chance to bring them out for a walk...

Nothing spectacular... Just a quick picture without even using a tripod.
