Don't know if you're responding to me. My point is, just because you haven't seen something in your town doesn't mean it's not happening all the time somewhere else nor does it mean if you are looking at a picture of it that it was a fake/setup/staged shot.


You might want to start breathing into this lovely brown paper bag, read my grouchy post above about how perception is reality and to shut up about it already, and edit your comment so that whoever left that doesn't get pissed at being called by such an expletive. :P

I have'nt been on this site for a few months. Did something change? Are there new rules?

Dude, just a statement in gerneral,,,,but I would like to see some one prove that a candid was a stage shot just by looking at it.....I'm waiting on Judi's comment during day light hours. A comment from her before going to bed might get me in trouble....Lol

Scores thread! Rants about candid/not candid/staged/random/whatever, please go read Rebecca's post, then take it to a new forum thread.

Thanks to Timfy, mine has dropped about .04. If his has gone up that much, we'll have words.... :-)

"Take your camera with you everywhere this week and capture a candid moment."

Mmmm, I must have missed the part where they added to this challenge rules and explained that a candid moment was more than just capturing a part of my day. Apparently a candid has to be of a stranger, an adult only, never an animal, child, or anyone who happens to be looking at the camera. I think if people are going to say DNMC then the challenge needs to be more specific about what it says to do. How can any unplanned, unrehearsed shot, taken on the spur of the moment, not be fit into this description above?


Easy - Candid photography is defined all across the web, and in photography, as photography of people in their natural state. Why? Because (for instance) animals, flower, bugs, etc. are completely ignorant of photography. The point of candid photography is to capture someone in their natural state, without knowing that a photo is being taken. Again, why? Because people change their behavior _drastically_ when they know they're being photographed.

This also applies to children, but not as drastically. Children will play for the camera, but they play when they're not in front of the camera, too. The point with them is just to get it when they're blissfully unaware.

My photo of a worker at a candy manufacturer being dragged onto a conveyer while machines install almonds into his back and cover him in coconut flakes before going into a chocolate bath is ABSOLUTELY candid...I swear it! I don't appreciate all the comments saying that this was staged. How could you stage that?
06/11/2007 07:46:54 PM · #137
Well, the chicken sh*& that just gave me a 2 with no explanation as to what was wrong...can bite me!!! For the record, mine is not staged and couldn't be!!! So kiss my grits! :P If you vote that way, you will be smited!!

Ooh, way to be a perfect example of the bully I described above...

This happened in Candid III, too. It's always going to happen.

Random 1s and 2s happen in every challenge. Just gotta roll with it.

I get 'em every challenge, lol. And the comment about being smited also had a " :P " face include. I like my picture and the voting of others doesn't validate or not validate it, lol.

No one that actually knows me would ever take me seriously (which can be a drag at times), so I guess I have to put more "lol's" and hahaha's in to keep the uptight ones in life off the edge.

I'm happy and I don't care who cares. :D

Is this the wrong thread to b**ch about my hair? I'd give my hair a 1. Does this make me a troll? Honest opinions only please.
