| p.2 #1 · Fall Festival - Candids +4 |
I'm trying to figure out what would compel you to take that photo.
It's a capture of their spirited playfulness in the moment ... it tells the story of their lightheartedness in context with a hinting @ the transformation the festival (i.e. jus' funnin') has at taking people away from their normal lives.
It's a "people pic" (real people) ... not a "pretty pic" (pretend people) ... more of a PJ thing. Seeing a mom being goofy enough that it 'tickles' her daughter is an emotive human inter-relationship dynamic ... which also happens to include the (unseen) photographer that she is "playing" to. The woman in the bg is probably a merchant wishing people would buy more of her wares and instead isn't as enthused by their antics at the moment.
Definitely a "react" shot vs. a "thought" shot ... driven by the infectiousness of her spirited play. That, and when someone is friendly enough to "play to the camera", I think it is fitting to show them a little friendly respect / reciprocal acknowledgment by letting them hear the "click" so to speak, even if it is a shot I normally might not have intended to take ... it's an "Americana" real people, being real, thing (imo) ... both shooter and subject.
