What are the challenges of candid photography?

 

When you need candid photographs, not the pre-arranged ones where everyone poses, and the lighting arrangement gives you the best clarity, you need to have skill. The ability to judge a situation for light, clarity, and depth and the skill to bring up the photograph is dependent on the choice of the photography equipment.

Good equipment needed

For candid wedding photography, one needs a good long-range lens. One of the best all-purpose cameras is the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8. They have such versatility that you can capture everything from close-ups to portraits without having to change anything. You can get lovely wide angled shots with the 24mm range and long-range bouquet shots with the 70mm side of the lens.

Some previous experience in wedding photography will help you capture the best pictures. Though the best photographs have good light and the photographer avoids shadows or shooting into the light, there are a few more things they ought to know. That is the range for which the lens will work and the lighting conditions that the camera needs to have the greatest clarity. This depends on the model you choose and the settings you choose for the camera model.

Try the camera rental shops

The cameras are high-priced without a doubt and who can afford them? The people who can afford such cameras will have a blast of course but what about the ones who have it in them to capture great pictures but are out of the pocket? The option is to rent cameras by the day! This works out cheap and you have the top-end models at throwaway prices for the duration of the day.

One of the best camera rental places for those hailing or shooting in Bangalore is Qwikgear.com rental shop. This place has all that you need for an entire photography outing. The rate for renting a Canon EOS 6D is Rs 1000 per day. And you get a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM at the same price. If you hire it for more days, the price goes down. Rent a SanDisk Extreme Memory Card 16 GB for Rs 50 per day. Log into the site, register your name and have the equipment you need, delivered to your doorstep. This is a wonderful way to practice the art of photography.

Capture the moment

Most of the emotions on the candid shoot are fleeting and pass by without some people noticing it at all. The challenge of capturing one emotion in one frame comes out clearly in this type of photography. The moment the person has passed on to another emotion, the moment is gone. This is why candid photography is so thrilling – one must exist at that special moment to get the precise feeling of being with it.

Having a good high-quality camera helps you get the mood and the magic of the moment. You can capture the subject in unbelievable instants having expressions on their faces that they themselves would not believe. But then, that is one of the more challenging aspects of photography…a satisfaction that only they can experience.
