The beauty of candid photography is unmatchable because the person who is being photographed has no idea that he is being photographed and because of that he looks so natural and beautiful when the photograph comes out. Even now, though candid is not being done as much as it should, the number of candid photographs that are being taken is much more than those days because people have come to terms with the one fact that, though posed photographs are most popular and accepted, there still exists a certain degree of artificiality in the whole concept. Posed photography is fun and nice but nothing can quite beat the fun element of candid photography because everything you capture is received the same way it is interpreted and the pretence element is almost ruled out. Candid photography is most loved by couples, youngsters and nowadays almost everybody adores it because it is splendid to look at and quite easy to do only if the photographer understands the essence of the moment.
