Cellphone Snowflake Photograph Tips

Nov 10, 2022

We all love looking at pictures of snowflakes. We cover photographing snowflakes in the close- up section of our curriculum. I wanted to share a few tips here as well.

Photographing Snowflakes Tips:

1. Keep an object in the freezer that you would like to use as a landing pad for the snowflakes. This way they will not melt as soon as they hit an object that is at a 66-70 degree temperature. The frozen landing pad helps the snowflake prolong its form, extending shooting time. 

2. Use several different colored objects as landing pads. This way all of your snowflake images will look unique. Small colorful cutting boards are perfect for this. 

3. Make sure you have enough light. Some winter days can be on the dark side, casting a blue hue. Using an outdoor light, headlamp, or a flashlight can really help with this. 

4. Get close! Zoom in really close to capture fine detail.

5. Crop your snowflake image afterwards to bring in even more detail.
