(Camera: Ricoh GX200)
The most challenging aspect of doing snapshots is that while the photographer has to actively seek out the photographically worthy part of a scene, the final image should reflect not the interpretation of the photographer but the culture or spirit of the place as it is. But just because one has to observe this rule of thumb, doesn't mean that subjectivity cannot be displayed in the final image to make it visually more intriguing. All one has to do is practise more to achieve the balance.
As with most other techniques, practice makes perfect is a surefire way to make improvements in doing snapshots. The practising, however, can take months or even years. Another important thing is that an unassuming camera is a must. It follows that prospective buyers need to make their pick with that in mind.
