As intriguing as macro photography seems to be, the greater part is that we think we can’t do it since it requires specific lenses. Russian portraitist Alexey Kljatov, is a motivation for the beginner photographers, he made a home-made camera that can take marvelous micro pictures of snowflakes out of old camera parts, boards, screws and tape. He gave us charming close-up pictures of snowflakes that we cannot do without costly gear.
Kljatov’s gear makes the kind of photographs that may somehow require focal points or other rigs worth hundreds or a great many dollars. What’s more, the photos he makes with this gear look completely astounding. For more data about how he did it, look at his blog.
Here’s what his gear looks like:
