Tricky – Capturing the smiles

When someone knows that there picture is being taken, they instantly get stiff and have a forced smile on their face.  Forced smiles do not make for a great picture.  Especially when your getting paid to take their picture.

Recently I did a location family portrait and I have to say that one of my favorite pictures occurred when they thought I was doing something else but my camera was still on them.  As a photographer you have to be ready to capture the moment because you nevr know when it will appear.
