In this conversation, snow scientist Dr. Florent Domine discusses his snow and ice crystal photography. He uses a macro lens, extension tubes, and a reflex camera but needs to keep it at a specific temperature while taking the photographs. Due to the cold climate, he stores the camera in a cold room at -20 degrees Celsius.. Dr. Domine explains that taking photos of snow crystals can be a bit of work, but it is necessary to get a decent picture. While some snow crystals are aesthetically pleasing, most are just small, rounded grains.
