Snapshot thread! Got a picture of your dog you can't wait to show everyone?

Welcome to the snapshot thread!

This thread was created as a way to post your photos and get more exposure (har har) without the pressure to give/receive criticisms. This thread is perfect for people who are just starting out, have pictures of their pets or children and want to know how to better themselves, or if you did a MASSIVE shoot and you don't really think they all need to be criticized, just bring them here!

I'll say that if you do have a really nice shot, whether or not it was on purpose, post it in the PHOTO! thread, because you'll be more likely to get critiques if that's what you want. Check out both threads!

Rules:

1. Nothing is unacceptable! This is a much easier going thread, so if you have a picture of your dog you'd like to share, SHARE IT! It doesn't matter, but don't post an insane number of images. It's not the PHOTO! thread, sure, but this isn't a photo dump either.
2. Don't spoiler images, that's still a "no don't do that"
3. Crits aren't necessary. At all. Don't feel like you have to give them, and don't expect them; that's what PHOTO! is for.
4. Don't break tables, dude. Keep images at un-obnoxious levels.

Hopefully this thread works. If it doesn't, well, poops. I will start off: THIS IS MY GIRLFRIEND!

    i think it's a cool idea, but i'm not sure how this will fly with the admins
    the ac in general is sort of a crit place
    people who post illustrations or drawings that they don't want crits on get chased out pretty fast it seems
    so i dunno!

    I agree somewhat, but what if you post on the other areas of PA a lot, and you want an avenue to get your pictures out there, but don't want critique? Just to say, hey, I got all of this film that I'm just doing wacky stuff with/I just bought a new digital camera check out these test shots/I did a really big wedding and here are some extras that I just like, etc. It's just an avenue to get your art out there. I myself lurked for a long time on the photo thread and was kind of intimidated, honestly, before I made my first post, so I think this would be a nice way to get people comfortable with posting in PAC.

    I have a bunch of friends who have DSLR's, and most of what they take are snapshots, even though they're trying to get better. If they have one shot they really like, it's encouraged they take it to PHOTO, but they shouldn't hesitate to bring the other shot here.

    And for the pro's, if you have a lot of photos that you don't want to inundate PHOTO with, bring them here, people will still see them.

    But if the admins want to shut it down, they can do it. It's up to them, really, but I see a lot of merit in it, and it's working well for other art forums I visit. if it flies: yay, if it doesn't, poops!

    On second thought, my sister might not want me posting pictures of her daughter on the internet. Just because she's weird.

    I took my dad to see Millennium Park because even though he lived in the city for a long time when he was a musician, he hadn't been there in years. A good thing to know about my dad is that he is the coolest man.

    Recently I watched Erik Gist's dog while he was out of town and I took a few pictures of her and Franklin together. There really isn't any merit to these photos from an artistic standpoint..it was hard enough to get them to sit still for more than a second.
