  1. Beautiful ! I love white and subtle colors. They look so fragile.

    • Thanks Patricia! They’re so tiny, only a few centimeters tall, so pretty fragile indeed.

  3. Those are some cute mushrooms. A macro causes one to stop and really examine the details. Very nice.

    • Thank you, Yvonne! Yes that’s what I do when I see macro shots as well πŸ™‚

  4. These are just plain pretty! πŸ™‚ Reminds me of bridesmaids and a little flower girl.

  5. What a variety of mushrooms you have there. The warmth of the OOF background makes a nice contrast with the muted color of the mushrooms.

    • Thanks Carlos! Actually all mushroom pictures I published so far were taken in the same area. Lots of different ones (more than I’ve shown) grow there. πŸ™‚

  6. Hi Calee. Great photo as usual. I can see you’re getting to know your new camera very well. I’m learning a lot on the course I’m taking. I notice the metadata below the photo. I understand most of it – aperture F/4 on the f-stop scale, shutter speed 1/60th of a second, ISO sensitivity 400. But what is the 60? Also, do you know the best settings for motion blur? Thank you.

    • Thanks Lizzie! The 60 is the focal length, i.e. 60mm. Sorry but I’ve no experience with motion pictures at all! I guess if you pan a moving object, like a bicyclist, the cyclist would be sharp and everything around would appear as motion blur. Look for motion pictures you like and ask the photographer how they did it? Good luck!

      • Thank you, Calee. That’s the effect I’m trying to get for the 3rd assignment. I don’t think think I’m allowed to pan with this particular shot, because it says ‘no camera shake’ and if I understand it correctly, panning involves moving the camera. Thank you anyway for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it very much. Bless you.

        • It sounds difficult! But in my experience, the best way to learn is just to go out and try different settings. πŸ™‚ Good luck, and I look forward to see your shots!

    Delicate and so pretty. I like the way you blurred the background so that they would stand out. I also like the texture of the leaves in front.

    • Thanks Therese! In this picture I think I like the moss more than the mushrooms.. It looks so soft, I wish I could lay down on it. πŸ˜‰

  8. They’re so dainty and petite, they almost don’t look real.

    October 20, 2012 at 1:36 AM

    • It’s a small, magic world. Actually, so small I almost missed them. πŸ™‚

      • Think they wanted your attention so they could be in your blog.

  9. Love the bonzai look of this tiny beautiful landscape!

    October 20, 2012 at 2:47 AM

    • Thank you so much! You’re right, it does remind of bonsai πŸ™‚
