Mongolian Barbecue.

This week the topic is Candid Shots (human or animal). I want to see photographs  unposed people, family, friends, pets, animals in the wild.   I’m looking forward to what you all decide to post.  I just want you to have some fun with your photography.

Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything new you can photograph.

Upcoming Topics

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  For a great black and white photo look for contrast or highly textured subjects to photograph.

  • Back of Things
  • Lines and Angles
  • All Things Farm Related
  • Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators
  • In the Distance
  • Bricks or Stone

This challenge accepts the following types of photography:

  • Black and white photography
  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white
  • Desaturated – very little color tone left in your photo

I hope you have FUN a lot of fun with this challenge.

They may be posed, but I got a photo of this family taking a photo.

  1. Candid Photography is a favourite of mine. When I’m taking professional photos (Weddings/Events), I much prefer capturing the moments people don’t know are happening, as opposed to getting everyone to smile and say cheese… There’s a magic in candid photography, of moments and memories overlooked.

  2. Although the BBQ looks yummy, the mummy taking the family photo is my favorite this week, Cee. The tilted sunglasses on the little girl and her expression are priceless.

  3. Your candid shots are fabulous. My candid shots have been hit and miss. When it comes to people, I think I should try continuous shooting. I’ll probably forget. 😊

  5. When people know you’re taking a photo of them, most of them end up with a frozen idiotic grin on their face… (I’m not any better myself, in fact…!).

    But when I try to catch them unawares, they:
    a) they cover the lens with their hands
    b) raise a book to hide their face and I get a photo of a book cover
    c) spin around faster than a whirling dervish and present their back
    d) move and the picture comes out blurry!

    I’ve taken pictures of some butterflies instead in the Butterfly House of the National History Museum and some of them even came out sharp – but I can’t think in what way I could possibly incorporate a post with photos of butterflies into my blog. Anybody here knows a butterfly related book that I could ostensibly blog about?
