The Wall Street Journal Doesn't Get Photography Yet

New gear doesn’t create “better photos.” A better subject, a new way of looking at a story - this is the stuff of better photos.

I usually ignore articles like this because I see it so often, in so many publications. But it needs to be addressed when it appears in a mega-publication.

“I’ve discovered the secret to taking better Instagrams. And I’ll let you in on it.”

Spolier: it’s lenses for your iPhone.

Now, tell me how inspired the subjects are for the photos used as examples.
