Candid Camera

Posted by

This article interested me with its talk of candid photos, so yesterday I decided to see if I could capture a candid camera moment. It’s not easy! I took a lot of photos before capturing this one, which neither guy thought I was taking, since I used my phone. I just love the mix of emotions – shock and terror on the Michael’s face as my friend Paul squeezes his cheeks and looks like he’s in absolute turmoil. I like the idea of not offering any context to the situation – it begs the questions of what exactly was going on for this to happen.

I edited the picture a little, messing with the shadows, contrast, tint (I made it a little more blue to accentuate both of their outfits) and definition. I like the way it looks a lot – kind of sharper that a normal picture, and a little more textured.
