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.

 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
 Up early and rewarded with another fantastic sunrise. The colors were brief but beautiful. There were literally thousands of photographers lined up along the tidal basin. The reflections were beautiful but those can be captured anytime of the year, it was important to include some of the blossoms. *  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and #Canon 24-70 lens
