I spent ten years behind the camera lens, making photos for a bunch of different local and national clients. My style wasn’t in the Ansel Adams/Minor White contemplative, process-oriented large-format work. I was/am much more at home in the free-wheeling, fast-paced world of photojournalism, where you didn’t have the time to fiddle with your camera during the shoot: Either you were ready for the shot, or you weren’t.
Henri Cartier-Bresson is a hero to all photojournalists. His idea of “the decisive moment” is the foundation of modern photojournalism, and he used it to take some STUNNING photographs.
So what does this have to do with firearms?
“Technique is not so important to me, but people and their activities are. Think about the photograph before and after, but not during. The secret is to take your time but also to be very quick”.
Does that also apply to the shooting sports and personal defense?
