“How Are These Not Just Snapshots?”

For me, a “snapshot” is not so much about the equipment but more about the thought process that went into taking the photograph. A typical snapshot is something that was taken, well, without much thought. You just “snap” that shutter and away you go. Not much thought on the content or the lighting or the composition or anything else about photography in general. Really, not much but a snapshot of what is in front of the person.
