Henri Cartier-bresson

What are some tips on things to look out for? I looked up a bunch of the pictures he shot online, and it’s kind of difficult for me to nail down one major theme to look for when I’m shooting my project. Thanks I’m shooting it digitally, in color, then manipulating it later with Photoshop, if that helps at all. Essentially — If you follow Henri Cartier-Bresson’s philosophy, you should be successful I will however take some time being patient, waiting for the next opportunity to follow his style comes along. “For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to “give a meaning” to the world, one has to feel involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression. To take a photograph is to hold one’s breath when all faculties converge in a face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy. To take a photograph means to recognize – simultaneously and in a fraction of a second– both the fact itself and the rigorous organisation of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis” —– Henri Cartier-Bresson I mostly takes many years before one can put “one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis” To do this your photographic technique, compositional eye and heart must already be refined and well tuned. Was there an alternative photographer whose work you could emulate? One that might be easier for you to emulate, based upon your level of photographic skills?
