A snapshot is one that u're not satisfied with.
A goodshot is one that u're satisfied with.

In the end, its abt satisfying oneself just like how professional shooters satisfy their customers, except when photography's taken as a hobby, the customers that we're shooting for are ourselves.

I guess you can't really say for certain what is a snapshot and what isn't, but generally audiences can tell roughly how the photograph was taken.

snapshots can be identified by the lack of thought that goes into the picture. A good shot normally has some sort of theme, idea to portray to audiences and some framework its built around.

that's my take really, but i'm never gonna tell someone his works are snapshots, because you never know how much effort he's put into the photo. :bsmilie:

But if its other people's shot? How to tell he/she are satisfied or not?

Steve McCurry's famous shot is a snapshot to many who disagree with him. But win award leh. Good shot?

Recently seen someone's post here, I thought they were good shots, storytelling shots. But 1 kid says its a snapshot. I asked for an explaination since I can't find an answer in his pool of pix. No explaination leh....thats why I post here...

Looking for the answer;)

i think we should all practise an open mind when participating in an open forum. i've people telling me my pictures sucks, cannot make it, like trash, like sh!t, snapshotty etc. etc. but it doesn't matter really, you just need to know where you've come from and where you're going to. as long as it's not personal attacks, anything goes ;p

Agree. Some time, people let their pride and ego gets in the way. That is a hindrance as it will restrict the open heart and open mind concept. People as such just coop up in the own world and not bother to listen to others.
