Books – Photographic inspiration – The Decisive Moment

Coffee ThoughtsIts getting closer to Caroline’s birthday so I have started to look at books and DVD’s that she might like.  As well as that I keep looking at a few books that may inspire me photographically.

Top of the list I keep coming back to is The Decisive Moment and also the Magnum Contact Sheets.  These are expensive books but very inspiring.  Its good to see that even the greats would shoot a roll of film and only one or two images would be potentials.

Often today we come back from a shoot, memory cards full and are disappointed when we only have one or two good shots, but often its that fleeting decisive moment that makes the shot.
