A quick Google search says that a snapshot is an informal photograph taken quickly, typically with a small handheld camera. I enjoy shooting with my purple Panasonic DMC-SZ3 Lumix because it’s small and easy to carry anywhere I go. It’s got a Leica Lens and it allows for a wide range of control over the settings. It’s also pretty sturdy and has withstood my clumsy abuse.
Below are 6 more quick pics I took while hanging with my friend Speedy.
Quick Pic 7: View of East Texas Land +18 Vibrance
There’s really nothing spectacular about this picture but I like it. I like how blurry the foreground is and thought it would be fun to add a bunch of vibrancy and make that blue, green, and yellow really burst.
Quick Pic 8: 2 Old Cars
I love shooting old cars. Speedy was driving fast as usual, but after staring at this pic for a while, I’m not sure I could have gotten a better shot if we stopped . . . I mean, I could have of course, but I probably would have made it too complicated.
Quick Pic 9: House with Slanty Roof, b&w
This is one of my favorites. I’m so drawn to it. I love the lighting and the composition. It gives me a feeling of nostalgia and it triggers feelings associated with random memories that I can’t really fully remember. I also think of Miracle on 34th street . . . I guess I thought of that movie because she wanted a house. Hmm, I should watch that soon.
Quick Pic 10: Little White Sign
Another favorite. I think Speedy was actually speeding because I barely remember taking this pic. I like odd things in odd places. Why is there a tiny little white sign all by itself out there? Maybe the words are on the other side of the sign. Oh, and those oil spots on the road add a bit of visual interest and balance. Not too bad for a quick pic. If it was hanging in a gallery it would get some attention. Sometimes it’s the simple things that spark lively conversation.
Quick Pic 11: The Surveillance
Ahh feels good to photograph the surveillance. They’re everywhere, always watching, always focusing. I tried to create a sense of discomfort. Eh, it’s an ok quick pic. Not a fav. I had fun playing around in Lightroom though.
Quick Pic 12: Untitled, b&w
We had just pulled into a parking spot and we were sitting there for a minute waiting on the lady who parked right next to us. All of a sudden we heard a loud thud and slight movement. She actually hit his door with her door and left a tiny paint mark. I snapped this shot very quickly as I was walking by.
