:happybounce: :boogie: A DD! Thank you! :heart: :squee: 

Thank you so much!!! 


I've gotten some questions about how i photographed this snowflake, I'm terrible at explaining things, so I’m linking to some tutorials :)


This guy shoots beautifully clear snowflakes with a canon powershot:

Some info on reversed-ring macro :)

Me, I'm lucky to have a nice kitchen window, where snowflakes sometimes are blown onto and stay for a bit on the windowsill. The window is good for distributing the light from the on camera flash. (It's important to clean the window, or lots of dust spots to remove later).


I use a dslr with Nikkor kit 55-200mm 4-5.6 + a reversed Minolta 55mm f/1,7 (I think any would do, but it needs to have a manual aperture ring, or you have to fasten the aperture «tap» in the back with tape) (I found a reverse ring on ebay to fasten them to each other, both use 52mm filters).


Focus using liveview, magnified x2.


Soften on-camera flash with coffefilter paper and «bounce» it on the window. www.instructables.com/id/Easy-…


Of course snowflake days are not so often, even in Norway, so patience and maybe testing equipment on other things beforehand is helpful.


Thank you!!!

Very powerful and true for sure :heart: If we all could stop to appreciate one little snowflake's majesty, we all might appreciate the beauty of nature so much more instead of being wrapped up in our own lives. Congratulations on your DD! :clap: :love: :huggle:
