Hi Rissa,

You have put together a nice piece here. I’m not here to tell you how to write an essay, I’m here to get you to improve your photography! That said, the point of this assignment is to get you to think about what inspires you and why.

You’ve clearly outlined that in your piece so that’s great.

My first though about your passion for capturing that decisive moment reminded me of photographer Henri Cartier Bresson. Here he is:

He is a master at capturing that magic moment.

For example take a look at these:



How incredible are those moments?!

I’m not saying you can just wake up one day and be the next Bresson but he is certainly inspiring and I would advise you to learn more about him.

What’s even more fascinating is that he used ONE lens!

It’s just another reminder that your equipment is really not limiting you.

If you want to learn more about him just visit here.

Overall you’ve done well on your assignment and I look forward to seeing your next one!
