The basic goal of candid portraiture is to capture the extraordinary in every day life. This type of photography often tends to be part journalism and part abstract art.
Candid portraits document moment but often say something that goes well beyond that actual moment For example, in the sample image above, the moment is what appears to be a day at the park. The secondary impact may evoke feelings in the viewer of parenthood, father-son bonds, cycle of life, etc...
1. Take a candid portrait of another person. 2. Try to capture them in a natural unposed situation that speaks to their uniqueness.
