MUSHROOMS: Technique: Late afternoon. Cleaned site somewhat first removing pine needles covering mushrooms. First photo too dark. used shoebox-sized white cardboard and asked my wife to hold it so it reflected light to the under parts. Cost: Camera and lens +- $250. Cardboard $1. In retrospect with more experience would have use narrower aperture to throw background out of focus. Comment: Natural History local competition: Highly Commended.
