Capturing the Moment

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

One of photography's true greats, Henri Cartier-Bresson, nailed photography perfectly when he coined the phrase 'the decisive moment'. So perfectly, in fact, that it has foiled all attempts to escape the single, crucial idea of what photography, and photography alone, can do. Capturing the Moment deals with the unique power of photography to capture slices of time and life. What it is not is a book about shutter speed. It is about gesture, expression, things just touching and others about to happen a kiss, a ball in the net, an expression of delight, a glass about to shatter in pieces on the floor. Moment in all its forms is the true core of photography, and Michael Freeman will explain how to anticipate it, recognise it, choose it, and so capture it.
