Learn how to capture THE moment,that perfect image that sets you apart as a photographer.

Renowned photographer Michael Freeman teaches you the skills to anticipate, recognize and capture that perfect photograph in his latest book.

This is not a book about the fundamentals of shutter speed or how your camera works; it is a book that will teach photographers of all levels how to work with their cameras to capture moments whether they are occurring quickly or unfolding over many hours.

Capturing the Moment is about a gesture, an expression, a ball in the net, a whale breaching, like Marilyn Monroe’s skirt flying up or Alfred Eisenstaedt’s image of a kiss between a soldier and nurse in Times Square. Moments in all forms are the true core of photography, and this book will explain how to anticipate them, recognize them, choose them, and capture them, through the eyes and wisdom of award-winning photographer and celebrated author Michael Freeman.

“Standing on the shore of an ocean of imagery, you have to work harder to make one that stands out. It really isn’t enough to just point and shoot. The camera can do that for itself. If we want to be able to claim a moment in time visually as our own, we need to develop the skills to find it and capture it.”
- Michael Freeman
