Candid vs Posed

Two shots of one of our long standing members of the Wingate & Finchley team. Both shots were taken during a hot pre-season friendly match. And a bonus shot of our kit man πŸ™‚

A mid-half drinks break for the players and Ola’s caught with a water bottle. Taken with the Canon EOS7D mkII, Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. ISO400 1/1600th at f5.6

Half-Time and Ola wanders over to say hello / pose πŸ™‚ Fujifilm X100F ISO400 1/480th at f8

I couldn’t resist posting this one on twitter with the following text – “After the summer break it’s sometimes hard to remember what all the things in the camera bag are for – clearly the same applies to the kit πŸ˜‰ ” Peter, our kit man, looks suspiciously at a ball. Fujifilm X100F ISO400 1/800th at f8 – slight post-processing correction for under-exposure caused by the white shirt (you don’t have time to mess around with exposure compensation on candids πŸ˜‰ )


  1. Very nice photos, Martin. I always prefer a good candid shot to posed, but the candid still has to offer something of interest to me, and this one did. You captured the athlete “mid swallow” and the water bottle on a hot day provided that context of weather conditions.
