Starlight | Alexey Kljatov | As fascinating as macro photography is, most of us think we can’t do it because it requires specialized equipment. Alexey, however, is an inspiration to aspiring amateur photographers everywhere -he created a home-made rig capable of capturing stunning close-up pictures of snowflakes out of old camera parts, boards, screws and tape. His pictures give us an enchanting close-up view of snowflakes that we could never hope for without specialized equipment.
Snowflakes form in a wide variety of intricate shapes, leading to the popular expression that "no two are alike". Although statistically possible, it is very unlikely for any two snowflakes to appear exactly alike due to the many changes in temperature and humidity the crystal experiences during its fall to earth. // macro shot by Katsumi Oyamada
