Your challenge this week was shooting candid photos. Typically this means only people (sorry again introverts) but depending on the shot pets would also count. The goal is to catch people in the moment but a looser definition would be an unposed portrait. We had a nice amount of entries, but as a reminder, we are looking for new, or recent photos, not your one shot that fits the bill from last year.  

For our next challenge, with the holiday coming it’s time to get mushy with a #PRTV_love challenge. It’s an open concept up to interpretation but you may want to try Rose’s DIY Heart Shaped Bokeh How to for Valentine’s Day. Love is something that can be conveyed by a shape, action, touch, meaning and more giving you plenty of ways to come up with something for this challenge.

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_love.

Toby’s Winner:

Great on the street candid capturing a character!

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

I really like the out of focus curl connecting the foreground to the person in the back – the tone and grain here as well as the worn backdrop all work well together.

Kids can be difficult to capture truly candid moments as they are often very aware of the camera and immediately stop being candid when a lens is pointed their way – in both these cases the kids are distracted and I love the off-center framing and capturing moments other than smiling at the camera.

Roy’s Winner:

A cute little protester and the heart of being candid on the street, getting a moment of the Women’s March in NYC. As photographers, we catch glimpses of history on occasion and this photo of yours is a nice candid moment of the day with a sign and person that puts a lot of power to the event.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Kids love hiding, finding that moment and angle without her noticing is hard but worth it for this photo. It’s a nice capture of your child’s growth and a moment of history for her to look back on later.

Finding subjects at the park always works well for candid photos. Usually, they are not focused on others and you can sneak in and get a photo that captures the moment well like in this nice shot.

 I noticed these two hanging out on the floor and asked my daughter to stay still while my niece continued to be a #wiggleworm. Set a slower shutter speed on my #lgg5 and here is the result - Edits in #snapseed
 Today was a #goodday! An hour north of Seattle you can find these Short-eared Owls hanging out. Great testing ground for my Sigma 150-600 vs Tamron 150-600 G2 comparison I am working on. Go watch my insta story to see him blink :) * Captured with the Canon 80D and #tamron #150600g2
