|The good Samaritan.|
Welcome to my relaunched blog. You'll notice a new design to mark the moment. What do you think?
The plan is to write far more regularly. Short posts. Easy to read. Focused on a single subject.
This time it's about that vital element. The anticipation of the decisive moment.
As a scene unfolds you're thinking about what is going to happen next. Where are people moving to? What are they doing? What's happening in the background? Do you have the right point of view or do you need to move?
To be ready for the moment you need a prepared mind and a prepared camera. I almost never use burst mode. It's too inaccurate. While the shutter is clattering away you're not seeing what is about to happen. You run the risk that the exact split second you should have snapped is between frames. I prefer the approach of taking a single shot, relying on the skill of anticipating the moment, rather than on luck.
All of the photographs here were taken using the approach described above. Read the full stories about these images on Instagram.
