Are you using a tripod? I would highly suggest doing so. Also, are you behind a window or outside? I suggest getting out there (with an umbrella to make sure your camera doesn't get wet). As far as settings, it depends on the type of camera you have, but I'd say a shutter speed around 1/100 to 1/60 or a little faster should be good. That's how I've been able to capture individual flakes.

Good luck, and keep trying!
