The word "snap" already describes what sort of picture this should be, to snap a photo is to capture a moment, unprepared, unplanned, unaware. So, I like to snap photos of faces, while behaving normally, everyday life type, unaware of someone photographing them. The best would be if you use a telescopic lens, so that you stand far from the subject. But a close up will do its magic too. The more features the face has the better, like wrinkles, wide or large nose, lots of hair or bald, particular eyes and teeth. Smiles or serious look and other gestures can also be attractive for a snap shot. The secret is to be prepared beforehand, so that all you need to do is snap. Sometime cameras tend to take a few seconds before the actual snapping takes place, you can loose the effect you wanted due to that "late capture", so see you you can set your camera to continuous shooting, some cameras take up to 32 shots continual mode.

I like photos of people. Scenery shots are ok, but sometimes they can all look the same, especially when you are looking at other peoples' photos. I like to see pictures of my friends and family, it helps to bring back the memories of the fun times we have shared. :)

I like to tell a story...or at least, stimulate the viewer's imagination and interest. I like richly saturated photos generally (but not always - there is a place for the more subtle and muted pictures in my album). I like the tiny seen large, and wildlife, and landscapes - and cityscapes and those who inhabit them: guess there isn't much I don't like to snap. Want to see? www.davidrichphotography.org

My favorites are taking pictures of people. I'm lucky enough to have beautiful friends so I like to take candid pictures of them. The photos just become proof of this beauty that they all posses. Not only that but because I know them I can see so much more in the pictures. Does that make any sense??
