Instagram contact lenses are the obvious next step.
Death to Instagram, Long live the New Retina!
”Sepia Sandwich!” Damn, that just sounds downright nasty….[and/or interesting]
Am I alone in thinking that some of the instagram effects are decidedly not annoying? I hardly think that instagram was such a big hit because everyone was annoyed by photos that at least seem to have a little more soul than the lifeless digital images that most phone cams are/were capable of.
It is popular because people like it, allot. Wich is fine, doesn’t bother me personally. It is a shame though that the trend seems to be that a filter is seen as giving a photo personality, rather then what it actually captures.
It’s a personal choice and personal taste, but I think people’s photo’s would end up getting better if they concentrated more on what and how they caputred an image rather then the post processing part.
I imagine an Onion headline like “Forty-somethings In 2050′s Lament Childhood Photos Ruined By Parent’s Trendy Camera-Phone Applications”.
