My imaging philosophy is very simple. I strive to record the subtle, interconnected web of energy that makes up what we call the world. Beauty, which permeates everything around us, appears in its most sublime state when form, color, pattern and texture are all in harmony. In the same way as all "objects" in this world are fundamentally impermanent, and essentially arbitrary, partitions of an otherwise continuous, unfragmented whole, photography is (for me) an almost mystical process whereby the "veils of fragmentation" are momentarily lifted and the underlying essence of the universe is revealed. To see the whole, one must first learn see "parts" as real illusions.

For best results, you ought to be able to distinguish among all 10 shades of grey in the figure below.
If not, you may need to adjust your monitor's  brightness / contrast / gamma.
