G3User: The demise of paid photography continues. I cant believe all the positive posts to this story. No pro photographers I guess among the comments? How sad. Instagram's legacy is that it created a website that is killing off pro photography. This will only accelerate the process. Now, even soccer moms wont bother hiring a pro photographer, thinking that because they can slide a few levers on their tiny phone screens, they are now photographers and may convince them self's that they don't even need someone for their daughters wedding. How sad. and what a joke. Paid photography RIP.

Hey G3User,

I shouldn't worry about it because...

a) The majority of content on Instagram is 5h!t.

b) The fad WILL run its natural course and then die.

c) Eventually, the users will become bored with it and move onto something else.

d) The users will one day wake up and realise their content is 5h!t and move on.

Hugo808: Bet I could mimic this in Lightroom. Just gimme five minutes....

...and that's what it would be done in Lightroom or Fauxtoshop, a mimic. A faux copy. A fake. A counterfeit. Not real.

Black Box: Nothing in these photos is worth any attention. And nothing that can't be added in Photoshop. He uses an ancient process? So? Does he also use an old bottle of Bayer Heroin to treat his kids' cold? Or rides a horse to work? Yet another mediocre photographer trying to get some attention by "standing out from the crowd".

LEARN TO PHOTOGRAPH, DAMNIT!

Yes, Black Box, Fauxtoshop is the answer to every thing! Fauxtoshop, the panacea for the crap Fauxtographer. If you can't do it in real life you can always fake it in Fauxtoshop. Reading some of your comments I totally agree with the comment by chiane.

Please grow up and get a life then you'll realise the world doesn't beat to your drum and there are many rooms in the mansion of photography.

Wet collodion doesn't grab me. I find the results quite depressing in mood and feel. BUT, I totally respect the people who do it because it takes time and skill.

Perhaps, Black Box you are a Fauxtographer yourself. I suggest you live and let live, you'll be dead soon enough, don't waste life obsessing over what other people do or don't do in their photography.

Get over it!

Wye Photography: If you don't own the original it's not yours to copy.

It's not ethical to copy someone else's work and then use it for your own purposes.

What a load of thieves and people of low moral fibre we have here.

Hey Miwok, you just don't like photographers earning money do you!

What's your problem mate?

gsum: Ridiculous. Anything you post on the Internet becomes public property. Most photography sites contain post-card sized images that are of no use other than to give an impression of the full sized print. The images on my site are a bit larger at 800x533 pixels and are not watermarked. If anyone wants to 'steal' them, they are welcome.

Sorry howardroark you are just simply and totally wrong.

Anything posted on the internet (unless stated otherwise in any T&C) does NOT make it public property as a lot of Solicitors and court cases over IP and copyright issues will tell you.

I absolutely respect the IP and copyright of others whether posted on the internet or not. I will not take or use or copy something that is not mine. Generally, that is called STEALING, THEFT.

Mirrorless Crusader: This is not image theft, you are transforming an image with a watermark into an image without a watermark.

It's not OK to copy someone else's work and then use it for your own purposes.

Posting material on the internet does NOT put it in the public domain, it DOES NOT become public property.

(I hope you didn't mean what I think you meant).

So, if I come along and re-paint your car, it's OK for me then to take and use it? I've transformed your car into mine and it isn't theft.

brianj: Let the person who has never downloaded copyright software, music or videos critisise him.

I have NEVER illegally downloaded copyrighted software, music and videos. All the material on my computer I either own or have paid for!

Niklas Ramstedt: I'd actually consider this one. My Dell Precision M4700 is starting to get a bit heavy.

0 takes up more space too. It is decidedly obese and 1 is obviously anorexic. You have a too many 0s.

Wye Photography: There are many features in Aperture I really like. But, Adobe Lightroom has better, faster and easier to use features. Come on Apple, Aperture X please!

ThePhillips I have RTFM, I also have read the Lightroom manual. I prefer the Lightroom manual because it has faster and better features than the Aperture manual. Clear!

Maverick_: guys before bashing this, keep one thing in mind, the Surface is a very popular product. They do sell. And it's a neat but flawed concept.

I was in the market for an ultrabook, narrowed my choice to a 13.3" Sony Flip, but before buying it Sony sold that division and I decided to look further. Also 13.3 Flip screen is way too heavy to be used as tablet since the keyboard is still attached.

The Surface 2 Pro wasn't even in the running for me, because of the tiny screen size and weight.

So, I decided to look at tablets instead and just when I needed to finalize my purchase Samsung came out with the excellent Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. I got the LTE version on first day of release and have not regretted it.

Surface going to 12" is a good move, but a better move would be 13.3. Windows products don't work as well on small screens. But keep in mind, the thickness/weight of the Surface is its worst enemy.

The future will be phones and tablets and only 1% will use desktops.

Every product is flawed - to someone!

Jogger: Ive had a Surface Pro since day 1 and its the best laptop/tablet out there. Those with iPads.. have fun letting Apple/NSA spy on your every move and the walled-off ecosystem... hint, its a millstone, not a feature.

Get a life!
