Wow, good job! You’re braver than I am, I don’t think I would try sticking a piece of PVC in my camera when I could get a $6.00 accessory that would do the trick! Keep trying! I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be able to get some decent shots of snowflakes with that setup. (That is, if it ever snows again… 🙂 ) The way the weather is right now, snow would be a dream come true, compared to 90°F!
