I have always wanted to try my hand at photographing snowflakes. I was using d700, Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro lens, tripod and remote controling using CamRanger and my iPad. Playing remotely let me fully control my camera covered in a towel, while I sat inside nice and warm sipping coffee.
My original plan was to capture a flake falling. We will just say that I failed completely at that and decided to switch to the ones that weren’t moving. Having said that.. you have no idea how quickly the flakes begin to melt/break as they sit there. Also when looking this closely, it looks like a bomb going off when another flake hits the one you are trying to capture. This is the best I could do for now.
Post processing was done in Lightroom, Shapening Pro 3, Define 2, Perfect BW 1. I was using the CamRanger and attempted to do some Focus Stacking so I could play in photoshop to expand my depth of field. For some reason I struggle trying to get it to really change my focus. I will have to continue to play and figure it out.
