How do you "catch" a flake for doing this? Do you just have to wait for it to fall on your background and the snap the picture? I can imagine myself running around with a piece of carpet trying to catch them, and looking very silly at the same time. Then setting it down in front of the camera and taking the picture.

Kawi.i live on a second floor,with balcony.i notched 3 cardboard boxes to fit over the balcony railing,and put 3 different coloured felt material over them.basically wait for the flakes to land on them,and look to see if any of them are interesting.all these were taken at night after work.
I made a set-up for daytime also,but have yet to try it.
a piece of glass,sitting on a reversed foot stool.i have room to place a flash or two underneath,with different coloured gels to shoot them this way.anxious to try this method out,but so far,no snow on the week-ends!:-(

Ok, that's not a bad way to go. Just wait for a snow and shoot away. I'd love to try sometime, but I don't think he 1:1 on the 100L would magnify enough. Plus it doesn't snow much here. It does get cold though. I've though about trying to shoot ice as it starts to freeze/appear. Thanks for the quick setup walkthrough.

No problem.
a set of tubes would give you the mags needed,on your 100.
good luck.

Beautiful done, I am very jealous, we never seem to get the right sort of snow, always too soggy for pristine crystals.

These pictures are inspiring. Will go back and see if you detailed how to get these images.



Just a guy with a camera trying to capture life one moment at a time.
