The Decisive Moment

Pretty much every photographer worth his salt, sites Henri Cartier-Bresson as an influence. He coined the term "The Decisive Moment", and it stuck. The decisive moment can be anything from a tender caress, a change in light, or a straight up action shot. Even in the world of 8 shot per second digital cameras with 16 Gigabyte memory cards, it still feels good when you hit that "Decisive Moment."You don't have to be a cool French photographer from the 1940's to photograph them either. There are decisive moments happening all around you. Just reach out with your camera and grab one. (Cue the inspirational theme music)
