“The photographer’s eye is perpetually evaluating. A photographer can bring coincidence of line simply by moving his head a fraction of a millimeter. He can modify perspectives by a slight bending of the knees. By placing the camera closer to or farther from the subject, he draws a detail – and it can be subordinated, or it can be tyrannized by it. But he composes a picture in very nearly the same amount of time it takes to click the shutter, at the speed of a reflex action”.
Wonder what Henri Cartier Bresson would have made of a zoom lens and posting to Instagram?
Happy Christmas and see you in the New Year. Make sure you have got some cracking shots for the “What Christmas Means to Me” and mounting prints night, 8th January.
