Snowflakes by Alexey Kljatov

These incredible, macro snowflake photographs are the work of Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov. One might assume that this sort of photography requires advanced equipment, but you might be surprised to find that Kljatov’s images are captured with a DIY camera he devised himself, consisting of an old, low-cost lens and a Canon Powershot camera, all held together by a board and plenty of tape. Kljatov shoots snowflakes on both glass and wool; the latter, combined with natural light, gives a quality of depth that is not present in other extreme close-up snowflake shots, which have become quite popular.

You can find more photos, and read about Kljatov’s process at his blog.
