"Because breaking your camera is only half as stupid as using Instagram..."

Here's a funny video that tweaks all the Instagram users (and of course I'm one of them):

I don't think using Instgram means that you're not a "real" photographer, and I don't think "real" photographers don't use Instagram (what a silly thought).

But here's a thought: what if, in 5 or 10 years, the barriers between vision and execution are even lower? by that I mean, if you're able to see it, you'll be able to capture it? if you're able to imagine it, you'll be able to do it? ... I'm sure there will always be craft associated with photography, and it will always be valued. but I think the separation between "real" photography and ... whatever else we're talking about, will continue to narrow.
