Candid Photography Tips

Erin Manning speaks about candid photography and what it takes.

The only way to capture magical moments that appear for an instant to be gone in a second, is to shoot without the model posing. You will be able to produce really memorable photos that show life being lived naturally and genuine emotions of the people you shoot.

A few tips for candid photography:

  • Always bring your camera with you and be ready to shoot;

  • Never use flash;

  • Do not worry about your composition as you can always crop it later at home;

  • Expect a shutter lag in your camera and avoid it by half pressing the shutter release button;

  • Occasionally using a self timer may become necessary;

  • Try to be and look discreet, dress in black.
