Perhaps most importantly, however, the idea of the decisive moment hasn’t changed. There’s still one moment in every scene where everything is in place. In sports, news, events, weddings, and many other kinds of photography, the moment of peak action will continue to exist. Sure, you can go shoot Olympic weightlifting and just record every frame, but unless you know the most important part of the pull, you’re still not going to be able to produce an image that anyone with knowledge of the subject will care about. And even then, you’ll have to dig through a lot of files just to find that non-peak moment.
