Ok here's my first post of a Mushroom, (and friend)
....sorry I don't know what type mushroom..
Now I know it's not Chase, Alleycatz and Wooly standard, (my inspiration), but I've got to start somewhere and I've binned so many images I thought I ought to post at least one!
This is so difficult and with the 400D with no live view means really getting down and dirty.
I shall keep trying, next time with more light I hope.
Thanks for looking and the cc's on my Roe, always appreciated
Camera resting on my bumbag
Very nice shot, boy, you had to get down low for this one, I like it very much!
Nice shot, nice and low angle - I appreciate what you say about the 400D and live view - but this is a very good shot, no idea what type it is though,
looks like one of the Bolete family Jon,I can't quite tell from here though 'Yellow Cracked Bolete ' is looking favorite.
A lovely D&D angle,nice detail & dof,good colour too.Love the little 'visitor' hanging on
.If you take a small piece of kitchen foil with you & use it to shove some light under the cap you will be amazed at the difference it can make to the shadows.Play about with the position of the foil until you see it's effect.
If you can't get it close enough to the 'shroom or if you are out on your own,use a small stick with the foil attached to the end,look through the lens & move the stick affair until the light is evident..it WILL work.
Glad the D&D Club has been of inspiration to you..that's what the site is all about to me.
So....you wanna join ? I think this one qualifies you
Some of this fungi is very difficult to identify - I have had several attempts in finding out what my mushrooms were - yet no one has done so. Still back to yours - excellent as always. I agree with some of the comments chase has made with respect to lighting
i think you've captured thus little chappie really nicely jon, good light and great detail.
Works well for me. I like shadows, it makes the shot look real and there is still plenty of detail there.
Not a lot wrong with this Jon. Just needs a bit more light, but a few tweaks in P/S could help you there. I'm sure Janet is right with the ID.
BTW There's no live view on the D2Xs and D200, only Janets posh D300 has that.
Thanks for the mention.
Super shot Jon, definately Boletus family. You need to cut them and smell and see also colours inside to get a good idea of type. Some of these are the best eaters going.
Great sight and book for id is by Roger Philips or http://www.rogersmushrooms.com/
I find an angle viewer a godsend for low level
Thanks for the mention Jon
A great specimen with the added bonus of a spider.....and a great first shot of a shroom. All it needs is a little more light.
I agree with Janet ...this qualifies you into the D&D club
Love all the fungi shots that have been posted lately and this one's no exception. And the spider really adds something.
A fine shot Jon, If your going to eat this monster I would shake that spider off first.
Great image Jon, super texture and the spider is spot on
superb image great colour and detail
for a moment i thought it was woollyor alley cat spot on for first attempt
lovely image..loved the little friend too
It sure helps to carry around your pet spider to grab attention in certain situations Jon. A super image with good dof.
Shooting angle is fine on this Jon. As most people have pointed out it just needs a liitle more light . The foil reflection has worked well for me in the past. A very good shot.
superb shot great low point of view, like the spider in the shot as well
brilliant capture and a bonus with the spider
great capture nice tones and angle
Nicely done. I like the added interest of the spider.
Looks pretty damn good to me.
Cant see much wrong with this,I'd have been chuffed to bits with it,especially catching the spider too,superb capture,good idea from Chase about the kitchen foil.
