    Good stuff!

    behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable.
    Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.”

    One of the best pieces of advice I can ever give is to always think... Keep it stupid simple! less is more when it comes to good solid lighting techniques. I have worked with and shot beside many very famous and successful photographers and the truly best (not necessarily the most popular or biggest of names) live by this rule.
