Here are a list of simple tips on how to improve your candid photography. I have used them all and have found excellent results.
One of my tips for photographing candids of children: Because the kids will invariably want to “mug” for the camera at first, pretend like you’re take pictures by holding up the camera and then walking to a new position and repeating, . After they get bored and get back to what they were doing is when the real photography starts — you’ll be amazed at the images you will be able to capture.
