Yes Mdjak, shooting a shooter is always fun. Reciprocal shots are also cool: "I am shooting you shooting me shooting you..........."

I'll have to give that a try; sounds quite interesting.

Right Mdjak, forgot to mention it: That young woman's candid shot is very lovely. Not only it's a "pure candid" , but her profile and expression are of natural (unaffected) beauty.

Is there anyone using 300/400mm lens for candid?
I always thought candid means the people we photographed doesn't know being photographed, but why is it seems people use wide angle lens and snap it in front of the subject?

People do not necessarily notice with a short lens. They very often do not notice. I guess it could be because you are close to them and they may think you are photographing something behind them or possible they really do not care about you at all and you are not the center of their attention.

Now using a long lens in an effort not to be seen not only can draw attention due to the size of the equipment but may also strike people as a bit sleazy and then they start to think about what you are doing and why.

Long lenses also isolate the subject from their environment and quite often with street photography the environment is important.
