Or, it relies on professional shoots. But even studiously prepared photographs must appear somehow impromptu. The images that photographers treasure most tend to be the pure opportunity shots that were captured with a combination of talent, providence, and whatever equipment was at hand. The emergence of digital point-and-shoot cameras helped to enhance photographers’ spontaneity (if not their talent). They also introduced photography to a new generation of users.
