Starlight | Alexey Kljatov | As fascinating as macro photography is, most of us think we can’t do it because it requires specialized equipment. Alexey, however, is an inspiration to aspiring amateur photographers everywhere -he created a home-made rig capable of capturing stunning close-up pictures of snowflakes out of old camera parts, boards, screws and tape. His pictures give us an enchanting close-up view of snowflakes that we could never hope for without specialized equipment.
When I was a little girl I once owned a book of paper snowflake patterns. This year Ive cut out quick snow flakes for my video blog and a few small ones for my Sunday school class. The urging for very pretty ones is definitely there.
