Send a set of between six and eight high-quality photographic prints on the theme of
the ‘decisive moment’ to your tutor. Street photography is the traditional subject of the
decisive moment, but it doesn’t have to be. Landscape may also have a decisive moment
of weather, season or time of day. A building may have a decisive moment when human
activity and light combine to present a ‘peak’ visual moment.
You may choose to create imagery that supports the tradition of the ‘decisive moment’,
or you may choose to question or invert the concept. Your aim isn’t to tell a story, but
in order to work naturally as a series there should be a linking theme, whether it’s a
location, an event or a particular period of time.
Reasoning for submission of photographic prints for assignment 3:
The OCA strongly encourages students to submit a print submission for assessment
(this is mandatory in Levels 2 and 3). Sharing some prints with your tutor half way
through the module is an opportunity to get feedback on print quality. If you’re hard
pressed to submit the prints you don’t have to send the whole assignment, you can
send a selection and submit the rest of the series via blog or in the usual way that you’ve
agreed with your tutor.
The decisive moment in street photography . I enjoy street photography and like taking my camera out on the street. But I do find with decisive moment in street photography .You have to be fast .As those decisive moments you want to photography slip away quickly if your not quick. Watching the world go by can be fun. One of my favourite street photography website which captures decisive moment is Copenhagen Chic.Its about Danish everyday people cycling to work, school and play. Its there to portray that cycling is a sustainable and health form of transport.And you can be fashionable and chic at the same time while riding a bike. And its regularly covey that message by capturing the decisive moment .Whether it is women cycling in high heels with their handbags or women cycling with her child on the back on the bicycle.Its captures the decisive moment beautiful and very well. The photographer behind the website is Mikael Colville-Andersen. http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/
