Cool Poor Credit images

A few nice poor credit images I found:

Flakes In Situ (February 5th 2017, #1)

Finally, some light snow at a time when I had a few minutes to shoot! It was about -2C, and the snow was falling in large clumps made of many very small snowflakes. These two were part of a clump that fell on the railing of my front porch, where I shot them. The frame is a little under 5mm wide in this shot.

Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5 (@F/8) coupled with reversed Sigma 24-70mm F/3.5-5.6 zoom (@F/11). This was with the zoom at 28mm, giving 4.8:1 macro magnification, plus a very slight crop. Light comes from an off-camera, diffused Yongnuo YN560-III powered by a PB-960 battery pack. This is a seven-shot handheld focus stack.

A large, complex flake! (And its smaller, asymmetric companion.)

It was around -12C, with light fluffy snow falling – great conditions! I used a (reddish) tuque to collect some flakes to photograph. Frame here is around 9mm wide.

Technically, I think this is one of my very best flake shots to date, so I am uploading at a larger resolution than usual. Tons of detail here, so view large! 🙂

Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5 (@F/5.6) plus coupled reverse Sigma 24-70mm F/3.5-5.6 zoom (@F/8 and between 50 and 55mm). Light comes from an off-camera, diffused Yongnuo YN560-III powered by a Godox PB-960 battery pack. Twelve-shot (!) handheld focus stack, with EXIF from the first frame.

A second view of the same large, complex flake as my previous upload. The magnification is a bit greater, and the angle is different – it made the flake light up a bit more. You could say I got close to the "Komarechka angle". 😉 I also decided to convert this one to black and white. I don’t think the composition is nearly as nice as that of my previous shot, but each one has its strengths, IMHO. What do you think?
