What I would do if it was me would be to make the place where the image
is displayed have user input focus, and then capture the spacebar in

Since the spacebar typically activates the currently focused control,
when focus is on the image area itself, spacebar triggering capture is
pretty logical.  You can also have a "capture" button too that users can
click on.  But if the user wants to tab over to the quit button and
press spacebar on it, then it would quit.  Everything as the user expects.
