Re: Shots photos or images??

Never consistent, tend to use snap for quick reference shots. Picture or shot for one with a bit more thought. Image or portrait for more formal offerings.
Or any of the terms referred to by people already.
Would say it may depend on who I am talking to for some reason?
Similar when talking about the machine used to take the ( term under discussion)


Interesting conundrum.

Re: Shots photos or images??

I tend to use a wide variety of terms:
'snap' if it's grabbed without any thought, mainly with photos of mine where the subject is interesting but the image has no other merit.
'photo', 'exposure', 'pic', 'shot' ... more or less interchangeably
I'd usually only use 'image' of the picture had significant post processing - to separate a montage from a photo.
'Pano' & 'stack' might be used for appropriate composite shots too.

I think the word I use most frequently to describe my efforts is 'failure'.

Ah!
I have a special portfolio of those in fact it is my only portfolio.
It is kept the the toilet and the household edit the contents to improve them .
Not wishing to embarrass me with these improvements they then insist on flushing them down the facilities.
Personally I think it is just crap!
