All You Need is a Phone and Instagram

With baseball season just hours away from starting, I found this article about a New York Yankees photographer, Nick Laham.  His pictures are all taken on his iPhone and edited in Instagram.  And they made the front page of the New York Times.  This should inspire anyone to be a photographer and has started a war between iPhone and traditional photographers.

I love the fact that Laham showed how simple it is to make a picture look professional without shelling out a ton of cash for expensive equipment.  In this age of technology with reporters adapting to Twitter why shouldn’t photography evolve, too?  To all the traditional photographers who hate his success, maybe you should try an iPhone and Instagram and see what you can come up with.  Maybe it’ll actually be front-page material.
