Autumn fungi. I am very keen on mushroom hunting but always taking care of distinguishing the edible from the poisonous...But all them deserve a picture...

Hi Marta,
I like the colors and the light in the photo, but the photo is simultaneously overexposed (the mushrooms) and underexposed (the side of the rock behind the mushrooms). That is a situation that should be avoided in photographing.

When photographing mushrooms you should try to get as close into its world as possible. That means going as low as you can to the level of the object. The other point to consider is the composing. Put the mushroom somewhere else in the photo as in the middle, unless it fills the picture. This may be the way to show the audience, in what kind of environment the particular mushroom lives.

The good thing is that the mushrooms do not run away. You have plenty of time to find the best angle, wait for the best direction of light, perhaps consider the use of the flash and/or filters, before focusing and shooting.

Best Regards,
