Don Komarechka the Mad Scientist Photographer (Podcast 533)

This week I share an awesome conversation with my friend Don Komarechka about his most recent crazy scientist photography, as he sinks his teeth into full-spectrum, infrared and ultraviolet photography, as well as stereoscopic 3D macro photography.

    As always Don is very entertaining and a great photographer. I love that he is willing to really push the boundaries and really enjoys doing it. Another refreshing aspect about Don is that he doesn’t seem to ooze self importance. This is a trait that is hard to find in the photography world these days. Thanks for having him on Martin and look forward to your next episode.

      That’s great to hear Matt! I’m really pleased that you enjoyed this one.

      It’s always a pleasure talking with Don, but it wouldn’t mean anything if you guys don’t enjoy it. Of course, I know there’s not much chance of that happening. As you say, Don is a really down to earth guy.

    Very Interesting podcast. I was able to see the 3D images. I’ve never known about crossing your eyes. Fascinating! Thanks for introducing me to Don. I’ve been considering converting my original Canon Rebel to infrared. Now, I may end up doing that.

      That’s great Ron. I’m pleased you were able to see the 3D images. It makes all the difference.

      I’m happy that you’ve been introduced to Don now. Have fun!

    Oh my! I’m a student of Don’s and I stay perpetually intimidated by his expertise in so many areas. I’m planning to shoot the meteors with Don in a couple of weeks and to hear that he’s planning to capture them in stereoscopic 3D just pushes me over the edge. I may have to call in sick!

      Excellent! That’s so funny Carl. I hope you have a great time with Don shooting the meteors.
