|After photographing fungi for some time now I have came to the conclusion that you don't take good fungi photos but find them.|
A fungus that is mature not damaged by insects that's out in the open with plenty of available light and not covered in leaf litter should with the skill of the photographer produce a good photograph. While on the other hand one found in a dark restricted area, is damage by insects or rain will never give good result.
So to get good fungi photos be prepared to invest in plenty of time in searching for good quality specimens in ideal locations. This alone is no easy task as I go out during the season twice most weekends yet may only find 10 quality specimens each season.
Fortunately for me any time I go bush and come home with a photograph of a species I have not seen before is a good day but as time goes on it getting harder and harder to do this :)
