Don Komarechka: Down the Rabbit Hole – An Adventure in the Universe at Our Feet

The event was held on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Macro photography is full of hidden treasures right under our noses. Exploring this invisible magic doesn't need to be difficult, but it certainly is off the beaten path. Macro photographers often play by a different rulebook and the resulting images can bend our view of reality while still being "real". The images often require the hand of the photographer to be an artist well before the shutter click, helping define the work uniquely to the photographer who is creating it. This talk will go over all of the fundamentals and how to equip yourself easily to begin your own explorations, down the rabbit hole.


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. For more information, please go to
