The 5th annual Macro Photo Conference near Cleveland was a great success. All speakers did a great job presenting, and attendees were having a great time. Mike Matthews had interesting critters to photograph, Don Komarechka set up water drops, Jackie Kramer worked with the flower photographers and lensbabies, Harold Ross taught all about light painting and Steve Gettle covered his amazing equipment set up from high magnification photography. Attendees came from 25 different states and we had 12 come down from Canada. Thanks to all attendees and speakers. We'll be back again in the same location in 2019 with an all new speaker lineup. Sign up will happen in January.
