Photographer Uses Cheap Home-Made Camera Rig To Take Stunning Close-Ups of Snowflakes As fascinating as macro photography is, most of us think we can’t do it because it requires specialized equipment. Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov, however, is an inspiration to aspiring amateur photographers everywhere – he created a home-made rig capable of capturing stunning close-up pictures of snowflakes out of old camera parts, boards, screws and tape. His pictures give us an enchanting close-up view of snowflakes that we could never hope for without specialized equipment. [Read more...] The wonderful thing about snowflakes is that no two are alike. Their extraordinary diversity diversity stems from the many small changes in temperature and humidity that they experience while freezing on their way down to the ground. Kljatov’s rig creates the sort of photos that might otherwise require lenses or other equipment worth hundreds or thousands of dollars. Source: Flickr (via twistedsifter.com)

FULLTEXT01.pdf For $10, Convert Your Smartphone into a Microscope with Photo and Video Capabilities [Update - 10:43AM 10/29/13] We actually built one of these $10 microscope stands. Take a look at the photos we took using it to see how well it works. Now you can do science at home with a $10 DIY smartphone microscope stand. Like pretty much everything else they touch, smartphones make microscopes better by making them less expensive, more portable, and granting you the ability to take photos and video of your subjects. It’s great to live in the future. If you’ve got the required tools handy, it should only take about 20 minutes to build the microscope stand. Also, if you’re into home science projects enough to want your own microscope, building the stand yourself is probably just an added bonus.
