This is a book about gesture and expression, things touching and things about to. This is no technical treatise on shutter speed for action photography, but readers will develop a fuller understanding of moment – the true core of photography – in all its forms. Once you’ve digested the book, you’ll be able to anticipate moments, recognise them before they arrive, then choose and capture the perfect one in a way no camera can ever do alone.
How Capturing The Moment works
Freeman’s years in the field and many books have led him to hit upon a winning formulae with which he can explain even a complicated and nuanced topic like a perfect moment in a way any of us can grasp; each of his points is illustrated not only by the successful final shot you might have seen in a magazine, but also a full background story – what didn’t work, and why.
Is if that weren’t enough, you’ll find diagrams, alternative perspectives and anecdotes about shooting in a variety of exciting locations.

Freeman’s journey through the the principles of photographic composition is eye-opening, eloquent, and beautifully published.
