“The Decisive Moment” was a term coined by the pioneer of street photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson. During his time, photography was still a relatively new art medium and it wasn’t taken seriously. Furthermore, photographers were often criticised for not having the same discipline and creativity as traditional artists as photographers can create their images in a matter of seconds, not hours.
Once again, with the support of Canon Australia, the Ted's Fountain Gate team have held another successful Canon Lens Day. This was all about macro and the use of speedlights with close up capabilities. Having this on the weekend of Ted's huge "Friday the 13th" lens sale was perfect timing for photographers to test some lenses in the real world and grab some great deals!
If you happened to miss out on this event, don't worry, there are more to come :-) Just make sure you follow Ted's on Facebook HERE, or sign up to our mailing list HERE to get exclusive invites to these great FREE events.... Read More

This week we've collected a range of different B&W images, covering a variety of subjects and styles. ... Read More
