Compositional elements can come together in a decisive moment. Bresson believes photography should be free. It shouldn’t be something that requires deep thinking nor any sort of preparation. Photographs should be taken in the most natural form, capturing the true essence of the subject in its unrefined state. Initial glances are significant in capturing a moment, they tell a story and possess a meaningful aura. Bresson describes photography as being like a sketchbook, where each photo is a sketch that eventually leads to the bigger picture, the ideal photograph.
