In photography, we often talk about the notion of the decisive moment. That idea that all the elements of form, frame, composition, and gesture all come together in a complete image. There is the flash of time where everything is in alignment.

I believe there is also something else in photography that is equally if not more important. The idea of a defining moment. A moment in your photography or life that fundamentally alters your thinking and approach to photography. In this week’s podcast, I talk a little about how recognizing your defining moments in photography might be more important than your decisive moments behind the camera.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
