This is lovely. Is this one of those bio luminescent shrooms taken with a long exposure?

sure is 3-4mins you will need to get the glow from it maybe less if it is at its brightest :D

Behind The Lens

Location
Came accross this ghost mushroom in Southern highlands rural area 2 hour drive South west of Sydney
Time
Hour and half after sunset
Lighting
Used natural light and long exposure to capture the bioluminescence glow of the mushroom
Equipment
this was shot with D7200, 50mm 1.8 with camera placed on ground level
Inspiration
Me and my brother decided to do some walks around the area looking for this mushroom with no luck after long day hike we stumbled upon this mushroom on our way back along old mining rail track. the search paid off considering how long i been looking all month :D
Editing
For Ghost mushrooms yes always make sure its the colour i remember when seeing it glow which can be hard sometimes as they dont glow as bright as when you do the long exposure. i made sure the highlights were not blown out and bring the shadows out for details.
In my camera bag
Depending what i am shooting at the time, have D7200, D800E, Sigma 150-600mm C, Tokina 11-16mm, 50mm 1.8G, Sirui travel tripod, Miops trigger.
Feedback
Search for the mushrooms during day once you have found it setup for the night shot. most times you do not need tripod can just lay camera on ground or your own bag. depending how bright the mushroom is can get 15-180Sec exposure ISO800-1600 Fill the frame.
