Candid Photography


A candid photograph is included in a type photograph which is captured without creating a posed appearance. This is achieved in many ways, for example.

  • When person is in motion.
  • By avoiding prior preparation of the subject.
  • By surprising the subject.
  • By not asking the person to smile or pose during the process of taking photos.

Thus, the candid capture of a photo is related to the subject’s no knowledge about or dissent to the fact that photos are being taken, and unrelated to the subject’s permission for further usage and distribution. The interesting factor is the actual absence of posing. However, if the subject is absolutely don’t have sense of being captured and does not even expect it, then such photography acts like secrete photography, which is a special case of candid photography.

Candid photography requires a better availability of light because flash awares subjects to the camera and may startle them. This causes them to react or become self-conscious and stage their photo appearance rather than behaving naturally. Due to this reason, early candid photography took place outdoors, where the sun provides ample light. Candid photography was historically related with the grainy, high contrast images that result from these techniques. With the use of digital cameras it becomes easier to take pictures in low light conditions without flash.

All these faults are usually acceptable because of the limitations of candid photography.
