Lens-Artists #67: Candid

This week, Ann-Christine has challenged us to capture candid shots of people and/or animals.

This challenge was a difficult one for me because it’s hard for me to get good photos of people. Usually my candid shots are epic fails, either blurred or someone has a funny look on their face. As I searched through my photos I found some candid shots from our trip to Ireland and Scotland earlier this year.

On that trip we visited more than a few pubs. I couldn’t help but capture a few candid shots as we enjoyed a pint and dinner after a busy day of taking in the sights.

I loved hearing the music in the pubs and seeing the street performers.

  1. A very diverse candid gallery! No blurred or funny faces as far as I can see…My favorite is the Dingle shot of the two musicians – you can feel the atmosphere and how engaged they are in their music. And who can resist a Scotsman in his full monty?

  2. Judy, I love these. It is very hard to capture people in candid situations. As soon as most see a camera they either duck away or pose. Either isn’t good. That’s Giant’s Causeway photo makes me smile in remembrance of a day not long ago when we did that very thing.
