The Psychology of the Decisive Moment

This moment occurs when the visual and psychological elements of people in a real-life scene spontaneously and briefly come together in perfect resonance to express the essence of that situation. Some people believe that the unique purpose of photography, as compared to other visual arts, is to capture this fleeting, quintessential, and holistic instant in the flow of life.

For this reason, I often mention the decisive moment or similar ideas about capturing

the essence of a transitory moment, when I describe the magic of creating photographic work.

My goal is to honor the process while

demonstrating technical precision &

an awe-inspiring

love for the making of art.
