What’s wrong with candid photos? Or supermarkets, girls and pantyhose

Usually you do not expect high quality from a candid photo. Out of focus, with a tilted horizon, strange colour balance, overloaded channels, what else can go wrong? But the moment is captured. And the photo will remind you this moment for years.

Unfortunately for many candids, it’s mostly “the photographer” and ” the model(s)” who look at such photos with interest. Quite often you have to explain others what this is all about, and there is nothing wrong with it. It’s your own experience, your own memories, your own feelings. Your own perversions, if you want.

Of course, it would be nice if most candid photos were of high “professional quality” and “cultural and historical value” (think of Henri Cartier-Bresson). But… Anyway. We do our best, don’t we? Check the following forum thread. for a start: Candid photos of girls in pantyhose

And here’s a couple of photos I made in Kaufland (German supermarket). I neither had my primary SLR photo camera, nor could I use a flash. The girl was wearing BLACK (yes, black, not brown, ha-ha) sheer (around 30 den) pantyhose with RED dots made out of small nylon brushes. Very long legs!
