Snap?

A client called me the other day and said something along the lines of "you have a really nice camera that takes big photos, right? Can you come snap a few for me?".
Note to all non-photo geeks in the world. Yes, it is a nice camera, but it really can't take any photos by itself at all. I do that, and it has nothing to do with "snapping" anything.
As much as I love gear (and yes, most photo geeks LOOOOOVE their gear), good photos are about light, composition, and capturing a moment. The nicest camera in the world can't help you with those. Sure, once you have all those down, great gear certainly helps. Key word...helps.
I want to remain open minded about people's lack of understanding but at the same time, I can't imagine calling my accountant saying "hey, you've got that really nice calculator....".

It really is all about light and composition! It can get really complicating sometimes... for me!
