For a period of time, I carried cameras with me wherever I went, and then I realized that my interest in photography was turning toward the conceptual.

In a story, you have to have a theme and an angle, you have to have a beginning, middle and an end. You have to have a defining moment and kick it to death. You gotta be able to recognize that, by the way. It probably takes experience.
