Thinking Photography: The Decisive Moment And Landscape Sunday March 31, 2013

In this video I present a few ideas about photography and how they apply to outdoors photography in particular. I describe the ‘decisive moment’ and how it’s a useful concept, and how you are involved when you photograph nature, mountains, and the landscape, and how that differs from ‘street’ photography.

Henri Cartier-Bresson was a famous photographer who coined the phrase ‘the decisive moment’ which in some respects lies at the heart of photography. Walking the hills, the fields, or anywhere else outdoors, you find the right moment for a photograph according to season and light.
