  1. Seeing a bunch of canine orgies would be a change of pace!

  2. Guilty as charged! Only on one though, the sunset. It's just so pretty.

  3. Guilty of most, especially the dog orgy!

  4. I've never used instagram, but I'm guilty of taking pictures of food, clouds, and sunsets.

  5. I have never photographed an orgy of any species. I have, however, combined nail art, circle of feet and beach feet all into one picture. Is there some kind of award for that?

  7. Yes, as with other corporate-generated fake movements like Lomography, Instagram is mostly an excuse for bad photography.

    The plebs think it is cool because technique and reproduction are poor?! Actually, this can work, but perversely only if the photography is good. But an out of focus ultra-closeup of your dog's nose isn't improved because it is put up on some fleeting pop-culturally cool forum. It is just still a bad photo, done a million times.

  8. What Pomposity said.

    Running a crapshot (as I call them) through a series of filters isn't "art" - it's still just crap in a novelty toy wrapper. That being said, I have improved photos from time to time by judicious use of PP (post-processing) techniques.

    I've shot many sunsets, but only a couple that were sort of print-worthy. They may be a cliche, but they are still hugely popular as a subject, and when well-done, I love them.
