There was a time when photography changed for the better AND the worse at the same time. There was a time when digital point n shoots became so common, the were hardly noticed when you whipped it out. Family parties, days at the zoo, etc. They were so common nobody noticed. That has continued, albeit more with phones. The only place I see a PS is at a family party and it's more often than not women. Now there's also a rise in DSLR use at these type of gatherings, and I'm seeing those at parties a lot more, and it's both men, women and kids using them. Nearly every wedding I've done has had a DSLR produced by one or more guests. But the DSLR kills the moment. If I try a candid from close quarters, then I'm often spotted and it spoils the moment. Compare that with a PS, and no one bats an eyelid. I think for me the DSLR screams the Tog is here, better look at the camera, which isn't what I want. Quite often, I get either a 'Say Cheese!' moment, or something stupid. This image from a wedding first dance was where the couple spotted the DSLR.
You can see the candid moment was spoiled. As Danni and her husband became more involved in the dance, they relaxed and the intimacy became more apparent. I think it's only when there's something happening that your subject is concentrating on enough to not notice the bulky camera that a DSLR works for camdids.
