Macro photography is a genre that many people avoid because they think they need specific gear (a macro lens) and they haven’t bothered to make the investment. For anyone considering the jump into macro photography, there are a multitude of different approaches to increase your magnification into the 1:1 lifesize realm and beyond. If you already have a macro lens, this video will show you the myriad of ways you can push closer and closer still.

My name is Don Komarechka, and it’s my honor by the ON1 guest coach for June. With a specialty in “the unseen world” of macro photography, I have gone down many rabbit holes in the past decade or more exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes.
Hey everyone, I had so much fun hanging out with you all this month as we explored all that goes into landscape photography behind the scenes. I loved reading all the comments and hearing your stories and additional tips. Thanks so much! As we saw from my trip to Oregon, things don’t always work out the way we planned; but despite all that went wrong we still came back with a few good shots and plenty of memories and laughs. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
Hello Everyone! Thank you to those that uploaded a photo to be critiqued this month. The individual photo critique videos are posted below.
Now available! Architectural Photography Course by Jim Welninski
I’ve had a lot of questions lately about what tools to use when removing distractions in Photo RAW 2018. In this video I show you how and when to effectively use the Perfect Eraser, Clone and Healing brushes to remove distractions from your raw images. I’ll also talk a bit about using these tools with a Wacom tablet and how to maximize your system’s performance when using these tools.
If you haven’t used the new Import engine in Photo RAW 2018 you really should check it out. It automates and streamlines a lot of great digital asset management tools in one place. In this video I show how I use Import to automatically rename, back-up, organize and add metadata to my files quickly and easily.
More often than not, travel photography is amazing. On the overwhelming majority of the trips I’ve taken, I come back with hundreds (sometimes thousands) of photos with portfolio shots that I can pull out when needed for years to come. This trip to Oregon I took late last month did not fit into that category!

I’m on a constant, ongoing mission to whittle my gear down to the bare minimum of what I need to effectively do my job out in the field. There’s a fine line though, and sometimes you don’t know you’ve crossed it until you’re out in the field looking for a piece of gear you left at home! On the flipside, I’ve picked students up on workshops (men too, not just women) who have two full-size suitcases, a mid-sized suitcase, three rolling camera bags, a backpack, and a laptop bag; and all of that for a 5-day workshop. For some, that may just be how they prefer to travel. But for me, the thought of having that much gear and luggage on a trip is a nightmare.

Hey everyone! The response to my last video (watch it here if you haven’t already) has been incredible. Thank you so much for all the comments, stories shared, and extra tips. Great to know there are so many other “weird” people out there :-)
It goes without saying that if you want to be a travel photographer, you’re going to have to travel every now and again. In this video, I touch on my strategy for planning trips ahead of time and making sure they’re paid off before the plane takes off.
