Event Photographer The Perfect Candid: You Have Come This Far

People put in a lot of planning to make their event special.  But at the end, the picture-perfect Venue, the nice delicacies, the entertainment and the lively atmosphere are not reflected in the photos. Talk about a case of coming this far but still arriving short. “The event was so full of life and energy, but I still can’t understand why the photos are emotionless!” Let’s understand what makes the perfect candid photos. I believe the reasons why anybody would want a paparazzi styled photographer is to capture the moods and moments during the event. I bet few people believe candid styled photography is easy and just anybody can do it. In fact, we have seen many attempts at candid on the internet and it’s not funny. At best they turn out as pictures without substance or moods. If you consider candid style photography as a serious skill, then you would most definitely evaluate the ability of the photographer you’re hiring. Here, you can either end up short or you find just the right person for the job – which is someone that can add depth to your event with photography.

Candid Event Photography

Candid styled photography is becoming more popular even in formal events like weddings, conventions and corporate events. Why you would expect a photographer to shot candid here and there during an event, it is now common practice to have one photographer dedicated to candid photos alone. I have actually done quite some few at weddings and Tradeshows where my clients ask me to take paparazzi styled photos while another photographer does the more formal, posed shots. The result is actually a blend of two styles which told a fuller story. The ability to take photos with depth or context lies fully with the photographer. Blending in, the right equipment, the right technique using this equipment, spotting the right moments and adding meanings are just some of the skills needed to capture depth and context in photos. If you have come this far, the only mistake would be to not hire a professional photographer for the job. Experience matters a lot in any profession, even more so in photography. One of the beauties of experience is that it makes a photographer a better anticipator. Which is an invaluable gift because candid photography is all about being ready before the special moments happen. You have come this far, and I believe you already know what to do to go all the way!
