Richard Koci Hernandez, assistant professor at the University of California, Berkeley, said, "Your creativity grows when you practice with your tool." This site is a tool and a journal to see how I improve as a photographer — a place for me to take a look at my own work and ask, 'how could I have done that better?'

The Oculus refers to a circular opening in a dome, more specifically the oculus in The Pantheon in Rome, which is a circular opening at the structure's center. It is also known as the Devil's Hole.
