My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great book! It is a hardcover printed on a heavy stock that showcases the images very well. The book is divided into 3 main sections, with lots of very well reproduced images.

The first section goes into the science and mechanics of how snow crystals are formed.
The second covers the equipment and how-to of shooting your own images of snowflakes.
And the final section covers post processing the many shots in software to arrive at the final image.

Highly recommended read if you are interested in the science, or photography of snowflakes or even just looking at all the pretty pictures of these short lived wonders.

It was a catalyst in rekindling my interest in macro photography!
Very pleased to have purchased it!

One thought on “A mini review of Sky Crystals

  1. Small update went and obtained a LED macro ring light from Amazon, and a pile of adapter rings from BHPhoto
    Thanks Don for helping me empty my already empty wallet! 😎

    Stay tuned for an upcoming review of all these new bits, not sure how well a LED ring light (60 high intensity leds in it) will work out.
    But the pile of adapter rings seem to work a treat, getting me to 4x life-size by reversing a 50mm lens and attaching it to a 200mm lens.
