“The Leica is more than a camera, it is a way of life.” – Constantine Manos
In this installment of the LHSA “How To” video series, LHSA member, Constantine Manos shares his 5 tips on how to capture the “magic moment.” Constantine Manos, the son of Greek immigrant parents, grew up in South Carolina. At the age of eighteen, he discovered Cartier-Bresson, the Leica camera, and Magnum Photos – and made his first serious pictures. At age nineteen, Manos became the official photographer for the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood. He joined Magnum Photos in 1964. His books include Portrait of A Symphony, A Greek Portfolio, American Color, and others. In 2003, Manos won the Leica Medal of Excellence out of a worldwide field of 250 entries. His work may be seen at the websites constantinemanos.com and at magnumphotos.com.
In this video, Helen Todd sat down with Constantine to discuss his 5 tips on how to capture ‘the magic moment.’
