Capturing the Moment PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Capturing the Moment free pdf One of photographers 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. It has spawned the inevitable contrary terms, such as Geoff Dyers ongoing moment and Gary Window grands indecisive moment, but these simply continue to reinforce the idea that there are indeed perfect instants in the world we see in front of us. The book, following closely on from Capturing Light, will deal with the unique power of photography to capture slices of times and life. What it is not is a book about shutter speed. It is about gesture, expression, things just touching and other about to happena kiss, a ball in the net, a whale breaching, a pole vaulter suspended above the bar, 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 this book will explain how to anticipate it, recognize it, choose it, and so capture it.

About Michael Freeman

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.
