This guide was inspired by getting a DD on one of my snow flake photos. It partially got a DD because it included details about how it was taken, though not all that much. A lot of people seemed interested, so I thought I could write some more. This is as much of a guide as I could make, given that I've only taken snow flake pictures in one way; the rest is just various little things I've learned by doing it, and a bit of speculation here and there. I've tried to be very detailed, because although I'm sure lots of you will find a lot of the details obvious, I think some people may not - different people know different things.
Questions, comments, criticisms, etc. are very welcome!
