It is so easy to think that macro photography is all about flowers and insects. However, there is another type of subject that I love to photograph with my macro lens, but I don’t get to do it very often.
Yes, that would be mushrooms.
Hunting for mushrooms
They are not something I can photograph in my garden because they rarely grow there.
I would like to say that they mainly grow in rainforests, but I have found that they can grow in very unusual places as well.
I’m not going to talk long today, but I have been thinking about mushrooms a lot. I mean that could be because we can’t get them in the supermarket much at the moment, like a lot of produce. Maybe it is because I am at home and don’t know when I will be able to photograph them again. Of course, summer is not a good time, but perhaps later in the year, I will be able to do them again.
A trip to a rainforest could be perfect. It is so nice to look into the detail of the rainforest to see what you can find.
So today I have been hunting through my archives and found a heap of mushrooms that I took with my macro lens back in 2015 on a trip to Marysville.
I hope you enjoy seeing them.
Take care everyone and let’s talk in the comments.
