Candid portraits

A candid is a portrait taken while the subject is not posing. This can be achieved either by capturing a subject unaware of the photographer’s presence or by introducing motion and surprising the model during a photo-shoot. 

This kind of portrait photography is highly popular in street photography and is becoming more relevant informal environments such as weddings.
