Don Komarechka is a Canadian nature and macro photographer living near Varna, Bulgaria. 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.
"Macro photographers play by a different rule book. Not only are the technical challenges more prominent, but so too are the creative opportunities. This talk aims to explore many elements of macro photography from composition to staging, various subjects you might never have considered, and how to handle the mistakes you make along the way as a critical component in your success."
