Barry Armer and I were talking about having problems finding inspiration. Barry indicated that when he got a photographer’s block, he would go to Kemah to solve the problem.
I like Kemah, but do not always find something that really makes me stand-up and take notice like walking around JD’s garden. There always seems to be something that I find interesting and most of the time they present some technical problem to photograph.
Such was the case the other day when I discovered this patch of mushrooms. I liked the color and the texture and that is what I tried to capture.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 105mm f/2.8 shot at ISO 800, f/22 and 1/30th of a second on a tripod.
Lightroom—Set black and white points, increased mid-tone contrast and changed saturation of yellow and orange, sharpened and reduced noise slightly.
