My reverence for the still frame is probably all the more heightened because I've spent the last couple decades working in moving pictures.
All images must be stumbled upon. That is, I can't go looking for a image, or have an idea in mind.
(This means I drive or walk many miles but take few photographs. One summer I drove 8,760 miles, back and forth across our country, but took only 8 photographs.)
The image must work at the time of capture. No post production allowed.
The image must hover between form and content, between being about something and being about itself. Ideally there is a dynamic in play.
What is the least amount of information possible that defines the point where content begins? Or, What is Empty, What is Full.
