...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
I have found out there is a big learning curve to photographing snow flakes. The first thing you want is some really big snow flakes so you can get more detail. Unfortunately these snow flakes were very tiny. They were all about 1/16th of an inch with a couple about 1/8th of an inch in size.
I tried to illuminate them with a small LED flashlight to bring out more detail. This only worked when they were turned just right. These still aren't the best photos that I think I can get. Hopefully I can get some larger snowflakes soon.
I can't believe I actually want it to stay cold and snow but I guess you can't photograph snowflakes without it being cold.
For anybody that is wondering, these were shot using a Nikon 28-300mm lens at 300mm with three extension tubes connected to the lens and all of the photos were focused manually.
