Oyster Mushroom
OK—so with a subject like this you might think, how can a photographer not make a good shot? This shot was achieved with a strong back light as well as a strong side light to create shadows in the creases. The photo below is the same mushroom with a back light and a soft front light. Without the strong shadows the natural design that makes these mushrooms so beautiful is not featured. Lighting makes all the difference—so keeping playing with it even after you think you've got the shot.
