When we’re looking for the unknown, we look up at the stars and imagine all the wonders they hold. But there’s a whole cosmos just beneath our feet, ready to be discovered. One of them is Don Komarechka of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. His macro photography experiences offer a better knowledge of how everything works, even things we can’t see with our eyes.
Macro photography is more than just close-up shots; it’s a new way of looking at the world, showing the tiniest and often-overlooked features of the subject. Don Komarechka, uses his macro camera lens to explore nature presenting water droplets as small works of art. “All of these photos are like small sculptures.” Komarechka explains, “Very fleeting, and only attractive when viewed from the correct angle.”
Komarechka’s droplet series has little spheres of water scattered across petals and flower stalks in each shot. The photographer’s amazing photographs demonstrate how the blooms are mirrored in the surface of the droplets by experimenting with perspective. Each globule despite being liquid resembles a flowery glass paperweight or snow globe. “I’ve always believed that the essence of the beautiful photography is a blend of art and science; the more you wave that mesh, the more wonderful the results will be,” Komarechka adds. “The essence of the statement is water droplet refraction photography.”
Insects are frequently seen sitting close to and among the fine drops emphasizing how delicate these natural moments are. Komarechka captures these ephemeral moments in photographs, capturing them just as a bug breaks the droplets or they fall to the ground. “Photography enters as a supplementary element to capture the little creations before the water evaporates and the magic fades,” he explains.
