The element of surprise – That's what candid photography is all about. Capturing your snaps at any given moment, whenever life presents it to you, at any candid moment. I have found candid photography to be most effective in capturing life as it is, in its own natural environment. It could be a busy market place, or a relaxed vacation – the photographer needs to be ready at all times, as you never know where your next candid shot lies. Some of the best shots of human emotions are caught through candid photography, as there is no playacting or posing and it is an instant natural response that the photographer captures.
