In the Australian film PROOF (d. Jocelyn Moorhouse), about a blind photographer and his friendships, the "decisive moment" in terms of the movie's key themes of betrayal and trust occurs as a freeze from motion into still photograph. It may also be useful to you that the photographer's blindness requires other characters to "narrate" the photographs' contents to him, which turns into a Big Plot Device.
