In my opinion, a candid photograph of a person or group means a picture which reflects the true emotion of that particular time when a photographer click. Usually, when the subject looks to the photographer or photographer, ask them to look, it takes away the real impetus of the activity and they become camera conscious.

Emotions are like a flowing river, if you stop, it will adulterate. So as a candid photographer, you have topick up those innocent true moments and capture in the frame.
