Macro Photography: The Universe At Our Feet


Online Presentation:

Wednesday, March 10th

Chicago Photography Classes is excited to introduce you to Don Komarecka. Don is a nature, macro, and landscape photographer located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.  Macro photographers often play by a different rulebook. Gravity might play a much less important role in a composition, and the physics of light becomes a point of increasing frustration the closer you get to a subject. From both artistic and technical backgrounds, this is a genre of photography that can help inspire your creative and inventive spirit from the comfort of your backyard or kitchen table. This presentation aims to explore the basics, dig into the science, and weave together a fabric of art and physics that makes magic.  For further reading, Don has also published two books (links in the description).

Don Komarecka

Don Komarechka is a nature, macro and landscape photographer located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. From auroras to pollen, insects to infrared, much of Don’s photographic adventures reveal a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes has been a common thread in Don’s career as a professional photographer.

Always science-minded but never formally trained, Don uses photography as a way to explore and understand the world around him. Photographing something unusual or unknown is the perfect excuse to learn something new. Don’s work often pushes up against the technical limitations of modern camera equipment and the physical limitations of light itself.
