Pro Photographers Potentially Ruining Instagram?

by Christopher Paul on May 1, 2012

Jorge Quinteros arguing that by taking pictures with a camera other than the one Instagram has access to, you ruin the service:

“The purpose of an app like Instagram is to celebrate the increasingly mobile culture. There’s no right way or wrong way to use the service but sharing dSLR photos on Instagram seems almost like violating the spirit of the app.

…it’s like you saying you’re going to bake a cake based exclusively from what you know and what have in your kitchen but in the end you end up borrowing ingredients from your neighbor along with suggestions on how to make it look even prettier.”

I agree. I can’t stand it when I see professional shots uploaded to Instagram. If it’s clear to me the photo wasn’t taken with a mobile phone, I’m not going to follow you.
