Henri Cartier-Bresson achieved authenticity by photographing a situation without influencing or imposing control over the elements or action taking place.

Shot lists and the time restraints of most location photography don’t allow that flexibility. Especially when you work with non-talent. They behave differently in front of a camera. The very fact that you’re there influences the situation.

A minimalist approach.

I take a minimalist approach to controlled scenes.

Looking for points-of-view that juxtapose the people to the environment. Only moving, taking out or adding to elements that strengthen the composition and make the image more interesting and believable.

Using simple, short, action-specific direction based on behaviors that people exhibit in the situation we are capturing: “Talk to each other.” “Open a file and work on it.” Direction designed to start a natural action and lead to an authentic moment.
