The Decisive Moment Rumble

11

One of the things synonymous with Henri Cartier-Bresson, aside from being a photographic genius, is his concept of the "decisive moment". Do you have shots following the same credo? Let's see it!

Credits: cruzron

While we Lomographers like to shoot from the hip guns blazing, occasionally there are times that call for more patience and a little more finesse. This entails waiting for the ‘eureka’ or decisive moment while taking photographs. Could it be adding a human element juxtaposing geometric lines? Or something much more complex or even much more basic? Show us your best decisive moment photos!

Details:

  • Prize(s): 3 winners of 10 piggies each. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 10 photos!
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags).

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
