Moooi! Please contribute to my toadstool challenge, i'd be honoured

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my outdoor studio in the middle of Bispgården.
Time
It was a september day in the morning.
Lighting
There is always a little back light in these photos. It is ambient light.
Equipment
In this case it is free hand. with a nikon D3200 and a 55 - 300 mm lens.
Inspiration
The love for a unusual composition, made me set up a compositions with these mushrooms. Som seeds on it and wait.
Editing
I made the contrast stronger and sharpened it.
In my camera bag
tripod, batteries, cleaning gear, rain protection, remote,
Feedback
Compositions like these is best to use a tripod and a longer lens, but here i used 220 mm. Feed animals regularly. It is good that they get used to the camera and photographer. Create a place with nothing in the background. I learned to watch with my right eye in the camera. normaly I used my left eye, but my camera is a right hand camera. This way I have more sight.
