Candid photography tips

Updated: Apr 17, 2018

Candid style images are making a huge splash in photography these days. Capturing those unique, candid moments in time are priceless.

More and more these days, I'm getting hired to capture the 'behind-the-scenes' moments that are so precious to the people involved. Those moments when people have let their guard down and their public masks come off.

“The 'official' photographer will be there to capture the must-have moments but those who are crafty in capturing the more honest moments will always capture the heart and soul of any event.”

So what can you do to ensure you are one of those rare individuals who can capture those endearing moments?

Have you camera with you - at all times!

Seriously, I cannot stress this one enough. I can't count the number of times that I've missed out on a #candid moment because I'd left my #camera behind!


“Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.”

My personal preference for #candid photography is to always use a zoom lens. This allows me to capture those #unguarded moments when people aren't aware that the #camera is pointed their way!

Lose the flash

Pretty straight forward. If they see the tell-tale sign of a camera #flash going off, then the masks will quickly be put back in place.

Get Strategic

Think like James Bond and look for those sneaky places to aim you shots from.

Above all,
“Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.”
