This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Candid Shot’
This weeks theme is candid shot and I was thinking of putting in a photo of a fish yawning. It was however pointed out to me that the word candid only applied to people, so disbeliever that I am I looked it up on the oxford online dictionaries and darned if it isnt true! It makes mention specially as
“(of a photograph of a person) taken informally, especially without the subject’s knowledge”
So here we are, transported back to 2008 when I first got my DSLR, location: Venice, event: Masked Ball for Carnevale di Venezia. Bear in mind four things when looking at these photos, one, I was a newbie, two, I should probably reprocess them in a newer version of LR, three, there wasn’t much light and finally, four, I’m better at taking pictures of fish ;) I hope you enjoy reliving this experience with me anyway. Below is a photo of me in my get-up (taken by Mike), the rest of the photos are all candid shots I took through an evening of opera & dinner – all done incognito:
To see more images from this ball, the gallery is here. It’s great fun if you ever get a change to go.
