Burnt offerings, photography and binge thinking.
There can be no representation without a subject and there can be no abstraction without representation. All semantics aside, you cannot abstract nothing because the word nothing is just an illogicality created to explain the absence of everything.
Some time back I tried to identify the elements of what makes a good photo as a means of being able to leverage those elements better in my photography. In other words what elements does a good photo need to cut deep into the viewer’s mind. I came upon an idea for the following model...
What does the Konica UC Zoom-Hexanon 45-100mm f/3.5, the Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 and nearly a dozen other f/2.8 lenses share in common? If you guessed they all have measured T-stops of f/3.5 then you’d be right.
