If there’s one thing photographer Alex Kljatov has taught us, it’s to think outside the square when an idea arises. The Russian creative has captured some beautifully enchanting and highly detailed photographs of snowflakes; using little more than his basic point-and-shoot camera, a board, some tape, a screw, a piece of glass and the lens from an old russian camera, proving that you don’t always need the most expensive equipment to get the best result.

Kljatov’s setup features a Canon Powershot A 650 and a 44M-5 Helios Lens from an old Russian Zenit camera taped backwards to a board. For more information about his rig and how to make it, check out his blog post.
