File this under ‘D.I.Y.’ and also ‘awesome’. Photographer Alexey Kljatov took an old lens from a Russian Zenit camera, flipped it around backwards, and taped it to a crappy point and shoot camera. Based on that description you would expect some pretty mediocre results, but his macro images of these snowflakes speak for themselves.

Lots more images below!

    These are stunning! Seems to have much to do with his post-processing as well as this DIY lensing…http://chaoticmind75.blogspot.ru/2013/08/about-averaging-identical-shots.html

    Is there a profession that revolves around looking at and analyzing snowflakes? If not there should be.There should be a lot of things.Such as: more snowflake pictures, giant snowflakes the size of the rims on those really weird cars (I believe they are called “donks”), tear-free shampoo that is genuinely tear-free, limbless animals that can float around like furry blimps, etc.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
