スナップとポートレートの違い - Snaps vs. Portraits




As objects in portrait works are persons, it is so too in more than 80% of my snap works. Then, what is the different between snaps and portraits showing the same object.
For me, the decisive difference is in the consciousness of the framed person.

If the framed person is conscious of being photographed, then the resulting work is a portrait.
On the other hand, every unconsciously taken picture turns in to snap.
It is a simple little difference, but fundamental.
