Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Things you need to take good mushroom pictures: A tripod, flash + reflector, a macro lens, and post-processing skills. Dutch photographer Daniel Laan is very good at all of this, check out his portfolio on 500px!

Unfortunately, I have none of this but that doesn’t stop me from photographing anyway 😉 Here are some pictures from today’s walk-

  1. Awesome photography, despite not having all the equipment you need!

  2. I think you do just fine without all that stuff! The ones on that website are very cool but not as natural as yours. So keep doing what you do😊

    • Thanks so much, Tony! 🙂 Indeed, that’s another kind of photography, but I hope I’ll be able to make something similar in the future.

  4. Who says you need all that stuff! You seem to do very well without it! And if it works – which it does – more power to you!! 🙂

    • Thanks so much, John! 🙂 I manage to get reasonably sharp images by using as much daylight as possible, but I hope I’ll get better results when I get a macro lens (it’ll be released in a few weeks time). And one day I hope I’ll be able to get those cool “welcome to the underworld” mysterious mushroom pictures as well!

  5. Your pictures are, without all the accessories you mentioned above, just fabulous. Forget all the stuff, you have proven that one can do without it.

    • Thanks so much, Greta! 🙂 I do what I can but I can’t take pictures like that though, but maybe (hopefully) some day in the future!

  6. Wonderful photos, Camilla!

  7. Ah, the frustration! But all that equipment is no fun to deal with, and it can get between you and the experience much more (I think) than when you simply peer in closely, inhale that wonderful aroma, and take a photo. (But I am sure you’ll have a fabulous time with a macro lens).

    • That’s a good point, Lynn! I definitely don’t want things to get too technical and put more focus on the equipment than the photographing itself. But I’m 100% sure I’ll enjoy the macro lens though! Let’s see what the future brings 🙂

      • And when Spring comes, you’ll be completely comfortable with the lens, and you’ll have a blast.

  8. Calee, each of these is truly so beautiful.
    I love the wonderful light you have captured in each one.
