Just thought I would post this as it was intriguing and beautiful.

The most beautiful snowflake photos you’ll ever see, captured with a cheap DIY camera

 

 

All of the snowflake photos on this page, believe it or not, were captured using a six-year-old point-and-shoot Canon camera and a standard 58mm SLR lens that was produced in the USSR sometime between 1958 and 1992. Such photography ought to be impossible without a microscope or other expensive gear, but it just perfectly illustrates the photographic and aesthetic ingenuity of Alexey Kljatov, a Russian photographer who lives in Moscow.

Wow that is incredible!

 

I especially love the last picture on page 1. Fantastic!

Excellent, boopme, those pictures are so clear and the snowflakes remind me of my kaleidoscope. I do miss the pics those old cameras' could produce, not to mention developing your own film...I still have my Brownie...

Boopme!! WOW. Just incredible...I wondered what the background was on the snowflake you posted...it must have been captured on the dark wool fabric to make the lines in the background! Very awesome. Thank you!

btw, guys, here is what the photograher does:

"Alexey Kljatov’s setup consists of a Canon A650 IS point-and-shoot (extended to its maximum 6x optical zoom), attached to a reversed Helios 44M-5 (58mm f/2.0) prime lens. Because the rear element of the lens is exposed, an extension tube is screwed onto the end, acting as an ad hoc lens hood.

The entire thing is strapped to a plank of wood and wrapped in black plastic — to keep it still, and to block any stray light from entering the contraption. The camera is then rested on its head, pointing down through some glass at a target. Kljatov photographs snowflakes either on a transparent piece of glass, or on a dark woolen fabric. He illuminates the snowflakes with a flashlight, or sometimes shoots in natural light."
