“Tell me why the masses believe that applying an art filter to an image instantly makes it better? Oh look, it’s blue! It has a fake lens flare! Is that polaroid edge real?!!?!
It’s strange to me that we fall back on these anachronisms of the analog world. Kids don’t even know that these art filters were based on real analog phenomenon, and now they use them because they think it looks cool. Damn kids!”
That’s a snippet from the article which is so true; at least in my experiences. I’ve never used or tried Instagram, but technology sure has come a long way when it can mimic photography processes that take a while to achieve back in the day. Awesome or more of a cop-out? You decide.
