What is JJ Abrams obsession with lens flares?

I mean c'mon, I like lens flares too, but it's just too much.

Update:

well it's annoying. it seems amateur to me.

Update 2:

he did the same lens flare techniques in super 8. it was too much. it distracted from the movie. I didn't call him an amateur, I said his abundance of lens flares come off as amateurish.

    It is not an obsession. He is an auteur director and that is one of the things you recognize him by. Just like all auteur's have their thing.

    J.J. Abrams is NOT an amateur director. He's very talented. In Star Trek, he used a lot of lens flare because if a camera were to film futuristic lighting like that, it would have a **** load of lens flare going on lol.
