What is a candid photo?
A photograph captured mostly in motion, without creating a posed appearance. This is achieved by avoiding prior preparation of the subject and by either surprising the subject or by not distracting the subject during the process of taking photos.
Why I love candid photography?
By far the most interesting thing I find are people, people are unique and similar at the same time.
Many of us spend hours people watching it helps us validate our own existence and behaviours.
I don’t mean criticize or make fun of. I’m mean watch and learn from other people’s journeys through life. Accepting the differences and the similarities to our very own existence.
Behaviours that have been passed on by the roots of our origins or by our parents wisdom or lack there of.
There are so many influences that are shaping how humans behave. Such as religion, politics, social media, music,film and television. These influences shape humanity, for better and for worse.
There are two stories behind my photos, the subject’s and mine. Only one is mine to tell.
Please enjoy the moments I have captured of complete strangers, simply because caught my attention.
