Gerber in a Bubble

I attended a workshop this weekend with renowned photographer Don Komarechka on macro photography. Don presented at my photography club a couple of months ago and I was completely awestruck by his work.

After the club meeting I emailed Don and told him that a friend and I were interested in attending one of his semi-private workshops. While one of Don’s specialties is macro snowflake photography (you really need to check out his site) I wanted to learn how to photograph water droplets with  a refracted image in them.

Here’s one of my images.
