Growing On A Log | Fungi | New York
I haven’t spent a ton of time photographing Mushrooms and other Fungi.
I want to work with them as subjects more.
They are very interesting to me as a part of nature and as photography subjects.
The work I have done with them so far has turned out well enough.
I am not sure that I am particularly satisfied with how I have been incorporating them into the style of photography I like to create.
This cluster of puff ball like Fungi were growing on the side of an old dead log.
The log looked to have been laying on the forest floor for some time.
I shot this image close up with my 60mm lens and a shallow depth of field. This isolated the two Fungi in the middle.
This image brings out the texture of those two blobs of Fungus while contrasting it with the smoothness of the other Fungi due to their being out of focus.
Photo details: Nikon D500. Nikon 60mm f/2.8. Focal length 60mm. ISO 400. 1/320 sec. f/3.8.
