I'm trying to figure out just how bad of an insult calling someones images an
snapshot is.
 snapshot (n.) 
1. an informal photograph, esp. one taken quickly by a hand-held camera. 
2. Hunting. a quick shot taken without deliberate aim.
3. Informal. a brief appraisal, summary, or profile.
4. to photograph informally and quickly.
