Ya know how the snow can look like diamonds?

  1. Is it possible to get a good capture of those spectacular sparkles that I used to love as a kid?
    Any examples?
    Whats the best way?
  2. I don't know, but that would be quite something to capture!
  3. Back during my film days I used to have a Star Filter to put on the lens for special effects with lighting. This would probably work for snow with the sun at the right angle.

    I think this can be done in photoshop also.

    i know it can be done in photoshop, but not sure how yto make the camera catch it
  5. I know that in order to make lights appear starred, you have to use a really small aperture, like f/11 or even f/16. Kind of like the sun in these shots:


    I don't know if this would work for the snow, though. :smile:
