Would you mind giving us some technicals on this shot? It's not that I don't believe you, it's just I can't figure how you did this without a Macro lens, or extension tubes or a 3X converter.... ??

Great shot!

I did use macro lens'! :giggle: Am I supposed to put that in the comments below the picture? I know one person asked if it was a real snowflake, and it is.

The snowflake is on the fur of my glove, and the blue color behind the snowflake is from a coffee can that was sitting outside.

My camera is a Nikon D40x I use the regular 10-55 lens that came with the camera, plus the following ~

1 digital 52 mm PL filter (this I have on first)
1 Sigma achromatic macro lens (this lens is about 30years old and goes to the 35mm Pentax that was my mothers)
1 macro +10 52mm lens (this is the 3rd one I have on)

These are the lens' that I generally use when taking all of my macro shots, very seldom do I remove them from my camera as I also have a telephoto lens that I use for most of my regular outdoor shots.

Hope this helps you, I am not sure what else I can tell you about this shot, other than it was about 20 below outside that day and I was frozen by the time I was done! :D

Are you saying you are stacking these lenses?

Let me try to explain why I asked.... Shooting a photo of snowflakes is not easy, first the obvious thing is, it's not like you can grab the snowflake and position it where your want it. :giggle: Then getting the proper magnification is a trick, also. :nod:

I know, that the standard Nikon 18~55mm kit lens has a focus distance of about 11", so this lens alone will not allow this type of shot. I have a D40x as well as a D80. So, I know that if you enlarged and cropped it would not create this image.

It's not some perverted challenge, that I'm asking. It is purely from the technical standpoint, to learn how it was done. :nod:

I'm assuming that the last thing on your list above is a "Close-up" filter. :?
So, did you use the closeup filter with the Nikon kit lens? or did you somehow stack these lenses?:?

hugznstuff Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009
Yes I guess the lens' are stacked they screw into each other. :confused: So if that is what stacked is then I guess thats right.

:giggle: Actually I do place the snowflake where I want it! :D
I use a metal nail file to move the snowflake to the right angle and to also move the other snow flakes out of the way!

The camera is only maybe an inch away from the snowflake when I take the picture.

I will post a picture for you so you can see my camera lens' and what I mean.

Sure does! I was trying to figure out how you got 3 lenses to mount together and work with the various different manufacturers bayonet mounts! :rofl:

Thanks so much! Sorry to be a bother...
