In November of 2010, The New York Times made headlines of their own when they chose four Hipstamatic photos to grace their front page. And now, Instagram is getting in on the action as well. For Sunday’s paper, the NYT decided to use a photo of Alex Rodriguez taken by photographer Nick Laham in a locker room bathroom using an iPhone and edited in Instagram.
The photo shoot actually took place a year ago in February of 2012. Having to compete with countless other photographers, Laham set up in a stadium bathroom; and once he was done taking photos using his SLR, he decided to take a few snaps using his iPhone and the popular photo-sharing app.
