I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

The first one is my favorite. I've been looking forward to play with some snow flakes this winter!

Looks great, always wondered how to take pictures of snowflakes, any chance of showing us the techniques and setup to achieve such results....

Did you use a macro lens for these shots?

What aperture? Seems like you could use a higher F-stop or some focus stacking to get the full DOF..

Thanks, everybody. I put a mirror in the freezer beforehand, then took it out to let the snow land on it. I just hand held these shots, and I'm fairly happy with them! These were taken at 1:1 with the Canon 100mm f2.8L lens, 430 EX II flash, and a Rebel T1i.
With the first one, the shutter was 1/500, with an f9.0 aperture, ISO 800.

Thanks for posting your info. I've tried it with my 100mm, Rebel XT, and a flash, just haven't gotten those results. More patience needed I suppose. And also the wait for snow.

You're welcome! Have you tried using a mirror? I think it is one of the biggest helps, as it helps backlight the snowflakes.
