If you or your clients have requested “candid” photos, this one’s for you. When we think of candid photos, we think of the perfectly relaxed, comfortable, effortlessly beautiful people laughing or looking at each other, as if they never knew the camera was there.
And it’s cute to think these photos are actually candid, but they’re not (sorry to burst your bubble). When clients request those staple “candids,” it’s more than just showing up and randomly catching the perfect frame–there’s a lot that goes into the perfect “candid”: lighting, posing, and more. It’s my job to make you look effortless and at ease and that takes just a little bit of work.
