Is Instagram good for photography?
Right out of the gate, we were skeptical, but the logic is fairly sound. The idea is simply an extension of the 80/20 rule - 80% of the photographs that are taken with Instagram may be nothing more than a bad photo with a filter on it, but what if 20% of those pictures at the very least get the photographer to think more about color, composition, and subject? You know, those things that add up to quality photography.
We can see the value in that. It may be hard to ignore the 80% of crap, but if people are becoming more engaged and interested in learning about photography, that has to be a good thing. Right? What do you guys think?
