Candid photography is the one which is captured without asking the subject to pose for the snap. Candid photographies will give a very natural look to the subject in the frame. Here let’s see some tips to capture the candid photographs in the best way.
# Most DSLR brands provide options to shoot the photo either in the aperture priority mode or the shutter priority mode. Hence to take the best candids, instead of using the manual mode, try any of these methods. The reason for this is manual mode is too slow for candid photos.
# When it comes to taking the candid shots, you will not have enough time in changing the lens, because every movement of the subject will be very simultaneous. In this scenario, choose the Zoom lens instead of the Prime lens to capture the candid shots.
# When taking the candid photos, use the natural light to capture the pictures instead of using the flash. Choose the angle and the direction before starting the shoot. This will help you to adjust yourself in the best way later on. Using ambient lighting will help you in capturing the best candid shots.
# Instead of the manual mode, choose the autofocus mode to capture the pictures. Because in the candid photography you will not have enough time to focus the subject, as the position of the subject keeps changing frequently. Hence use the autofocus mode to capture the image.
# Don’t let the camera down, keep on taking many pictures. You can post-process the best images later, but you should not miss the moments. Hence take as many images you can.
