I Don’t Like Taking Candids

Which I believe I’ve mentioned. It just feels intrusive.  People try to go on, acting normal, pretending like you’re not taking pictures, but they know you are.  You know you are.  

I took this last night at the birthday party my brother Douglas threw for his most wonderful wife Robin.  Somehow it turned out black and white when I tried to correct the red eye.  

At a certain point/almost immediately, I turned my camera-attention to the glasses on the table.

One thought on “I Don’t Like Taking Candids

  1. Cool shots. I love taking candids though. It’s always good to be able to be in “stealth” mode and people don’t even realize that you’re doing it until the flash goes off.

    I was at a bday party last night, too, and some of the best shots of the night were the ones where the subjects didn’t even see the camera. Though, I have to admit, I got some nice posed ones, too.
