Such a pretty mushroom.

Behind The Lens

I took this photo in Brunssum, the South of the Netherlands. This is the most beautiful part of our country where I grew up.
It was about 2 PM.
The sunlight was wonderfully filtered by the trees, my favorite kind of light!
I only have a Lumix DMC TZ100, all my photo's are taken with this little miracle of a camera... It shows that you don't need an expensive camera with a lot of equipment to take photo's of good quality, The best thing of this camera is that it is very easy to take with you, because it practically fits in your backpocket. I am saving money to buy something professional though, because it will open new possibilities for sure and I am always looking for new challenges.
When you are looking for fungi to photograph, a blue mushroom must be the first price to find, they are very scarce in my part of the world. I practically freaked when I found this one, so very blue that I didn't believe my eyes! I tried very hard to find a point of view to make it stand out nice in a natural way with a neutral background.
I cropped the photo and enhanced the colors just a little bit in Lightroom
In my camera bag
I don't have any equipment in my bag (yet) I am a beginning photographer and I am learning to use a camera, to look for the good light, composition and point of view. One day when I know how to use and set the camera well enough, I will start to think about a bag filled with technical things instead of the need to understand how it works first...
The only advice I can give is to look around you for all the wonders the world has to offer, enjoy the beauty of the world we live in... For me capturing nice shots is a matter of trying to isolate nice subjects without forgetting the whole picture... The choice of a background is very important to put the subject in a context and to make it stand out better.The low point of view is a nice tool to show some backgroud and create depth. If you look at a subject to photograph, you have to try to realise what you want to achieve, Try to find the good light, the right point of view and the best composition... And most of all, take more shots with slightly different settings so you can choose the best one, once you get home and open your laptop when the magic of today's digital world begins... I allways crop it later into the size and composition I like best. Crop the photo in different ways, so you can choose the best one the next day when you can have a fresh look at them!
