Is when they’re tired.
It’s after the photo shoot is "done.”
It’s at this point, all inhibitions are gone.
It's not just acting candid.
It's a level of true unawareness in front of the camera.
I love this simple quote by Pinkhassov:
“Good photos have come when I least controlled the situation.”
- Gueorgui Pinkhassov
I always find when I step in, the magic of the moment is lost.
It can’t be recreated.
The best thing to do is observe, be ready and react.
One of the best times to do this is when people are tired.
And even if they do notice you, they are too tired to fight
that “awkward” feeling.
