11 Tips for Better Candid Photography
Uzi pointed me to this site today: 11 Tips for Better Candid Photography. It has some excellent suggestions, including a few I'd never considered. Like the following:
"10. Frame Images with Foreground Elements - A trick that I often use in candid shots is to purposely include something in the foreground of the shot to make it look as though I’m hiding behind it. You might do this with by shooting over someone’s shoulder, by including a little of a tree branch or the frame of a doorway."
So, in the above photo that I shot today, you can see that the person in the foreground is shot out of focus, but he does add some drama to the image. You have an idea of what Jennifer is reacting to. She's responding to this boy that I've shot (accidentally) from the back.
