Real snowflake macro photos for home decor, interior design and gifts
Hello! My name is Alexey Kljatov (aka ChaoticMind75).
My passion is taking closeup snowflake pictures. Natural snow crystals are amazing objects for macro photography, thanks to their beauty, uniqueness and unlimited diversity. Even after eight winters of regular photo sessions, seeing many thousands of snowflakes in all their details, i do not get tired to admire new crystals with amazing form or an incredible inner pattern.
From several winters, i've captured thousands photos of wonderful snowflakes. But quality photo processing of such small object as real snowflake requires time, patience and effort. Today, you'll see here more than one hundred processed snowflake images. I constantly work with new photos from my huge snowflake archive (even at hot summer!), and add new snow crystals to this gallery immediately.
Also, i like creating still life pictures in light painting technique (this is mixed media technique, which includes photography and painting parts), and high dynamic range (HDR) photos, especially cityscapes at night. Night in the big city, with millions of lights everywhere, is truly wonderful time, but only HDR technology can properly catch these scenes in wide dynamic range, from bright street lamps to deep shadows.
My photos was published by NASA, Wall Street Journal, CNN, Daily Mail, The Week, Esquire, Liberation, The Huffington Post, PBS NewsHour and Discovery News, showed on TV by Fox News, NBC News and USA Today, used as illustrations in books and as music disk covers, published on hundreds websites around the world. Here you'll find full list of publications.
