When this subject came up in the list of 51 Photo subjects, I thought that this one would be a short one. Let’s just put it this way: If you want to capture candid moments, you need to have your camera set for automatic. Over 90 percent of regular photographs will work when the camera is on automatic. When you have the camera set in automatic, and you want to capture a candid moment, just grab your camera and take the photo. Do not worry about having your camera is manual mode for this.
I always try to keep my regular DSLR camera in automatic mode, just for this purpose. I have a better chance of capturing this candid moment, when the camera is in automatic mode, than if I grabbed my camera and had to do manual settings. The most prized photos you have will be the ones you capture unexpectedly.
