    for me, snapshots are more like candid shots.

    thanks sir, that's also what im thinking.. so when you say your picture is like a snapshot what is your perception about this.. having a snapshot photo is not really a bad thing? am i right? or wrong? hehehe..

    BTW sir maco i saw ur photos on flicker i really admire those shots you have specially the street photography.. and the BORACAY GIRLS..

    For me, snapshots are unplanned, shoot from the hip type of shots. Whether good or bad, it all depends on the photographer.

    Re: Snapshot.. what is the difference..

    As i understand when people say "it's just an ordinary snapshot photo" is a candid shot without a story... it will become a steetshot or photojournalism shots when these snap/candid shots will have a descriptive lines and/or story...

    just my 2 cents...
