C is for Candid

by admin in Uncategorised

“…A photograph captured without creating a posed appearance.”

Take a look at our three candid photographs below!

Family Photo album

This is technically not a sole candid photo, but we like it as it symbolises how those speaking, exhibiting and attending THE Genealogy Show are all connected by one thing. Genealogy! And everyone with this interest has a place with us, and they fit in well! Much like how these photographs fit in their frames. This picture tells us of the importance of family history and how memories tell stories, which should be cherished and well looked after. This is something we hope to spread awareness of at THE Show.

The Photo Alchemist

If you’ve been keeping up to date with our recent blogs and competitions, this photograph with its colourised image may be familiar to you! We love this picture as it portrays such still beauty and pure innocence and we are sure most will see the same story; a World War Two soldier saying goodbye to his child, or children before they are evacuated to the countryside. Although we are unsure of the origin of this photograph, we do know that the image was colourised by Claudia D’Souza, The Photo Alchemist! Currently, we have a competition, whereby you have the chance of having one of your favourite portrait, couple or group photograph colourised. For more information please visit our competitions page and if you wish to see more of Claudia’s work, you can view her online portfolio here.


Yes, we know. There is nothing candid whatsoever about this picture in comparison to the last two. We like this one because it will probably get you thinking…Why not attend THE Genealogy Show in June?? Unsure whether to go? This blog will squash any of your qualms and, if you’re looking to buy, you can view all our admission prices here. What’s not to like? (About us of course, not the picture!)
