The First One

Yes!! It finally snowed!!


This is the first snowflake that I could photograph before it melted down... I know it's not perfect but it's my first time and I will practice more...


I shot it handheld with internal flash and high speed countinuous mode... I nearly took thirty photos of the same snowflake and a lot of them were blurry...


I don't own a macro lens, so I bought a retroadapter on the kit lens and that's it!


I shot at an aperture of 13.


Stay tuned...there will be more snowflakes....


Special thanks to Alexey Kljatov, who inspired me and who explained how he does his snowflakes photograhy and who proves that the camera doesn't matter. Check out his profile. He is really great!!
