Following the acquisition of Instagram by Facebook, Businessweek.com asked several prominent photographers, editors, and other photography professionals about Instagram. For many of them, the simple app has changed the way they shoot and what they choose to share with the world. Here are their replies, in their own words. — Brent Murray

"I only recently started to use Instagram. I've been more of a Tumblr user the last few years, but Instagram as well as Tumblr are now two social media sites that I use for my iSee project. I only post iPhone pics, and only one a day. Unless I'm on assignment, of course. It's been motivating since it forces me to get out and hunt for pictures, even when I'm pushing a stroller or carrying the groceries."
