After trying my hand at macro snowflake photos yesterday, I was able to make another attempt when it started snowing this morning.
Here are a couple results from round two. I decided to over-saturate the colors just because I liked the look:
I’ll be adding more photos to my Macro set on Flickr over the next few days.
Some new thoughts after today:
- I felt like even without any kind of rail system I was able to focus a lot better after some practice.
- I desperately need more light.
- My photos are noisy because of the high ISO, and they’re blurry because of the slow shutter speed.
There’s a good chance that today was the last snow of the season. I’m definitely happy with the results from just two attempts and look forward to improvements next year.
