The Art of Candid Photography

Often candid photography can pose a profound obstacle for those in need of candid shots. On the contrary, photographing those who are fully cognizant will lead to overly contrived photographs. Such photos take away from the photographic integrity of the photo and leave little to look at. How does the photograph walk the middle line between such delicate extremes?

For one, the candid wedding photography in kolkata should always keep his camera ready. At any second, if the photographer doesn’t have his camera set to his required settings, too much time will be less than enthusiastic to do so, setting the camera to P mode will often solve those problems related to setting. Sometimes concessions must be made in order to capture the right photo. Using a fast shutter speed will also help compensate for unexpected movement of the subject. Moreover, the point to capturing the spontaneity of the moment will be lost when the subject has been blurred.


Another solution, beyond that dealing with the camera, pertains to the photographer himself. Despite the photographer’s best attempts and equipment, taking a candid, quality photo can pose an impossible standard. To combat such complications, the photographer must learn to make his presence both acknowledged by the subject and yet outside of their awareness. Such a requirement seems to be a contradiction of terms, but for any seasoned photographer, doing so has a fundamental intuitiveness to its understanding. A good way to achieve this can be done by making friends with the subjects of the photographs. Doing so will ease the subject and remove his thoughts from the camera at hand. Another way can be to constantly take photographs. Humans are most adept at habituating to their environment. After hearing the constant clicks of the shutter, at some people they will no longer find themselves off-put by the sound. By taking into account these techniques, candid photographer in kolkata, beginner or otherwise, will master his environment, and thus his photography.
