Get those great candids

People often tell me that they want candid natural pictures that aren’t posed.  

It is possible to get very nice pictures that are  totally natural when the people are unaware that a picture is being taken as long as those people are in the right light, looking in the right direction, doing something interesting to photograph and the background happens to compliment the picture. 

 That’s a lot to happen naturally by accident.

 I find it easier to get people to do things that they enjoy, in the right light, with an uncluttered background.  I think of it as semi posed.

The question is, how candid are those great candids?
