Photo Issue: Austin Lassell
It is the job of the photographer to capture one out of many passing moments such that a sense of moment can be conveyed on to the viewer. A sense of moment is in a picture when the viewer looks at the picture and feels as if they were actually there, be it a tennis match, basketball game or a family gathering. When one thinks of moment in a picture, one tends to think immediately of sports. While sports is perhaps the most difficult type of picture in which to capture the moment, it is certainly not the only difficult type of picture in which to capture a moment. When taking pictures of people, portrait or other, there are subtle glances which may only last a moment, the same moment which the photographer will need to capture if they wish to pass on the emotion of the person being photographed to the viewer.
