Hikari is the Japanese word for light (and it also happens to be my favorite Japanese character or kanji). For me, hikari or light is the most important aspect of photography. Second is composition. Through these two primary elements of the artform, I strive to communicate the dynamic flow and meditative beauty of a location or individual. This gallery contains images that, I feel, best represent my endeavor to communicate the essence of nature to the essence within us. All images in this gallery were taken on Kauai. Updates will be made periodically so please check back from time to time. Mahalo! Lee

All images in this gallery-- and in my entire portfolio-- are single exposures. I do not use HDR. I do not blend or mix images together to make composites. All of my images are one shot and have been edited in Aperture or Lightroom. A few very long exposures and night shots have been edited with Topaz Denoise to remove digital noise caused by the combination of high ISO and lengthy exposure times.
