Image shot by Alexey Kljatov. All images in this post shot by and used with permission from Alexey Kljatov.

Alexey Kljatov is from Moscow, Russia and is quite the hobbyist photographer. He loves light painting, Sci-Fi and macro work. In particular though, he recently showed off a series of really awesome macro snowflakes that he shot. He also links to a tutorial on exactly how to do this and talks about it more on his LiveJournal.

More of Alexey’s work here on his Flickr. But hit the jump for a couple of selections of the images as well as his rig to shoot them: which is essentially a Canon Powershot A650 IS with a Helios 44 M-5 attached to the front.
