Awesome Macros with Simple, Affordable Gear

Even though the article on petapixel.com is already a bit dated and familiar to many of you no doubt, I still need to report about it. I was so impressed with and shocked at the results, when I realized the exact way they were achieved. It has to do with Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov, who takes stunning snowflake macros with a compact camera he optimized a la MacGyver. MacGyver, how, where, what? Read the Wikipedia article on MacGyver, view the following photo and the mystery will be solved. 😉

And now to the photos Kljatov takes with it:

Highly impressive! It seems you don’t need much more than a cheap compact camera, an old Helios 44M-5 lens, a thin wooden board and some tape to shoot stunning enlargements. Oh yeah, and lots of creativity and ingenuity! 😉
