Candid photography is snapshot photography
that focuses on
spontaneity rather than technique, on perfecting the immersion of a
camera within events rather than focusing on setting up a staged
situation, focusing on lengthy camera setup, or focusing on particularly
The photographic setup of candid photography is best described as un-posed
and unplanned, immediate and unobtrusive. This is in contrast to classic
photography, which includes aspects such as carefully staged portrait
photography, landscape photography or object photography. Candid
photography is supposed to catch rare instances of life from the very
immersion into it, rather than to produce imagery of still life, to catch
rare moments of "reality" which presupposes a definition of "reality."

Candid photography is also set off against the voyeuristic stalking
involved in animal photography, sports photography or photographic
journalistic intrusion, which all have a very strong technical focus
on getting distant objects photographed, e.g. by using telephoto
lenses. Candid photography's setup includes a photographer who is
typically there with the "subjects" to be photographed if not close,
and not hidden. People photographed on candid shots either ignore or
accept the close presence of the photographer's camera without posing
The events documented are often private, they involve people in close
relation to something they do, or they involve people's relation to each
other. Candids are the kinds of pictures taken at children's birthday
parties and on Christmas morning, opening the presents; the pictures a
wedding photographer takes at the reception, of people dancing, eating,
and socializing with other guests. They are taken at leisure, or at
special occasions, they show people as they are when they do not prepare
to be photographed.
