Today you will write about an image by French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Cartier-Bresson is considered a master of composition, and his photographs may be summed up through a phrase of his own: "the decisive moment," the magical instant when the world falls into apparent order and meaning, and may be apprehended by a gifted photographer.
Pick one of the 3 images above to write about. These were all created by Cartier-Bresson. Think about what you have learned this week regarding composition. What makes these images successful? Are they utilizing the rule of thirds? What perspective did the photographer choose to create the images? Is the photographer making a good use of the frame?
