Magic Mushrooms

No, not the psychotropic kind. Just plain old white mushrooms of unusually large size. You could find these specially packed and twice the price labeled as stuffer mushrooms, which I plan to use some of these for. But this time the boxes of white mushrooms were just huge. Something to put this to scale might have helped but believe me when I say that one of these filled my palm.

I have wanted to shoot mushrooms since we first saw a cluster in our front lawn a few years ago. However, the short longevity, difficult location, difficult angle and small size of them made a studio environment a much better option.

I really enjoyed making these photos and playing with fun light colours.
