Busted! The 12 Instagram photos everybody takes

We're big fans of photo sharing Instagram here at Creative Bloq, and there are many designers and photographers posting some incredible stuff daily that can be a real inspiration (we've picked a few of them to check out here (opens in new tab)).

Inevitably, though, not all of Instagram's 100 million+ global users are so creative. Flicking through the site and spotted some rather obvious trends, artist Joanna Zhou (opens in new tab) decided to document them in a series of pithy illustrations.

Are you guilty of these Instagram cliches? Or are there others you feel Zhou has missed out on? Let us know your views in the comments!

The current website team consists of six full-time members of staff: Editor Kerrie Hughes, Deputy Editor Rosie Hilder, Deals Editor Beren Neale, Senior News Editor Daniel Piper, Digital Arts and Design Editor Ian Dean, and Staff Writer Amelia Bamsey, as well as a roster of freelancers from around the world. The 3D World and ImagineFX magazine teams also pitch in, ensuring that content from 3D World and ImagineFX is represented on Creative Bloq.
