Snowflakes, Snowflakes, Snowflakes!
Alright, I’m not going to lie, but I forced myself to brave the storm to take photos of the Nor’easter macro snow. My fingers nearly fell off! I don’t know what it was about the snow, but that day was challenging. This was my third attempt shooting macro snowflakes and I spent, by far, the most time outside, trying to get just.one.good.photo.
Normally, I shoot snowflakes on wool, but this time I tried to catch them on glass. It was tricky. The snow that day was light, and the snowflakes were extremely, extremely small (microscopic, even), and most of them were either stacked onto each other or broken.
I had a nice ghetto setup which was constructed by placing a sheet of glass on two top of two amazon boxes. I placed color paper under the glass and viola, some magical Nor’easter snowflakes were forever captured in time!
Still on my way to figuring out macro photography, but what do you think?
Have you shot snowflakes on glass before? What was your technique?
