Presentation: Down the Rabbit Hole: Otherworldly Photographic Magic You Can Discover at Home
What magic can you discover at home, that would otherwise belong in a science fiction setting? Many photographic subjects remain unexplored and difficult to previsualize without some simple inspiration and tips to get you started. Once you go down the rabbit hole, however, there’s no turning back! A fantastic way to see everyday things that you would otherwise ignore with your own eyes, but there are challenges along the way. We discuss those challenges, ideas and many “what if?” moments during this talk to help the problem-solving process by reveling in our mistakes
Bio: 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.
