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.

Lazy days #candidphoto #lazytown #bookworms #prtv #prtv_candid

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.

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3
 Rainy Day Reflections of Seattle's coolest public library - I almost said coolest building but the new Amazon spheres are crazy cool. I like living in the future - now if we could just ecotopia this place up all would be peachy!
 Upper Sunbeam Falls - Powered by melting snow(seen at the top of the frame) - Captured with GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 lens 0.4 second exposure.
