Kljatov used his DIY camera to take breathtakingly crisp photographs of snowflakes against different backgrounds. He uses either glass back-lit by an LED flashlight, or dark woolen fabrics to catch the crystals.

Kljatov’s blog features selections from his 2009-2013 studies. He adds a little background color after the photo has been taken as most of the original images are monochromatic and “not appealing”. Following in the footsteps of famous snowflake photographer, Wilson Bentley, Kljatov exhibits some of the most spectacular phenomena nature has to offer.
