Incredible snowflake photos | Alexey Kljatov

snowflake-closeup-diy-setup-alexey-kljatov-13

Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov has created an ingenious and inexpensive DIY camera rig capable of capturing excellent close-up pictures of snowflakes. All Kljatov’s setup uses is a board, a screw, some tape, a piece of glass and the lens from an old Russian camera. The DIY gear, however, does not detract from the enchanting icy beauty of his photographs. And snowflakes are the perfect models – no two are exactly alike, so each picture will be unique!

Kljatov’s setup features a Canon Powershot A650 and a 44M-5 Helios lens from an old Russian Zenit camera taped backwards to a board. For more information about his rig and how to make it, check out his blog post. And here are some of the stunningly beautiful photos he captured with his unorthodox setup!
