Deuts on Candid Photography

When I got into photography, I had few types of photography in mind. One is the regular snapshot of events like dinner, etc. Another is sports photography, although this one I haven’t practiced really yet and test what can I do with my current set of photography gears. And another, taking photos of candid moments, just as when your subject is not looking up to the camera.

I like the way a candid photo can convey an emotion to the audience. Whether it be the feeling of excitement, happiness, “love”, pride, sorry, etc. Let’s exclude, however, in this discussion those shots that were taken to look “as if” candid. :LOL:

In the Digital Photography School, there are 11 Tips for Better Candid Photography. In these 11 tips, I think I can best relate to Tip No. 11, to wit:

Take Posed Shots into Candid Territory

This is because everyone in the shot is focused on the one element (the other photographer) – but it’s not you. If the main photographer has posed the happy couple of the day or their bridal partly look for a different angle to them to take a shot of the same subject. Often if you take a few steps to the side and shoot from almost a profile position you can get great shots.

Just like in this photo I took some time ago:

Actually, in this particular scene, I believe I took a better looking shot than the one the group actually posed for. It’s not a pity after all if no one’s posing for you! :LOL:
