Stills can add a lot to a video, and it's too bad that more videographers don't make use of stills, when appropriate. 


One technique I used was to zoom in and out of stills and do pan-and-scan across a still. You shooting video so you'll want to keep the visuals moving, otherwise a still could break the pacing the moving video has created.  


Another option is to do what the old Kodak slide projectors used to do – put an image up on a portion of the screen, then fade to another image in another part of the screen and keep repeating. The images keep moving so again, the sense of motion continues.
