Snowflakes get their close-up
Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov has gone up close and personal with snowflakes, producing a beautiful set of images captured using a macro lens and an elaborate setup he created to showcase the detail in the snow.
To achieve these stunning images, Kljatov combines numerous photos in a technique called “averaging,” which allows him to create the ultimate snowflake photograph. This image, called “Asymmetriad,” combines eight photos.
To get these amazing close-ups, Kljatov built an elaborate rig for his camera that involves an upside-down stool and a plate of glass. He details the whole process on his blog. This photo was shot in 2009, and Kljatov says he used a “green plastic carpet” for the background.
