Here is some exciting news for any macro photographer out there, Don Komarechka is working on a new book called Macro Photography: The Universe at Our Feet.
If you’re into macro photography then you will no doubt know Don Komarechka’s work, if you’re not familiar with Don’s work then you're in for a treat.
Don Komarechka is a nature, macro, and landscape photographer located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. From auroras to pollen, insects to infrared, much of Komarechka’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 Komarechka’s career as a professional photographer. Now Don is creating a new book from his experience as a macro photographer.
Imagine the mundane, everyday doldrums of life could be transformed into an otherworldly narrative. This is the world of macro photography, where the unseen universe at our feet becomes the fodder for creativity and beauty that we all ignore in our average day.
Macro photography is more than just a genre of images consisting of close-up images. Photographers in this realm often have to play by a different rule book and experience different challenges than “ordinary” photographers but learning the techniques and skills on a macro level have a far-reaching impact on all photographic thinking. When you start thinking “macro”, you almost always start getting inventive!
The book is now on Kickstarter and aims to cover every challenge that a macro photographer might encounter, from beginner problems like focus and motion blur, to more complex issues with magnification and diffraction, lighting and composition, and so much more.
