I spot­ted my Shot of the Day my­self, while we were look­ing for more au­tum­nal sub­jects to shoot. This fun­gus was hid­den be­side a moss-cov­ered tree and the colours just shouted out to me. I used many of the tech­niques that Heather had taught me to get this shot. First, I got down low to throw the back­ground out of fo­cus and keep the fun­gus sharp. I then used Heather’s ze­bra re­flec­tor to light up the un­der­side of the fun­gus. I also went ver­ti­cal, to com­ple­ment the ver­ti­cal na­ture of the fun­gus and the tree, and I shot on a tri­pod to elim­i­nate cam­era shake. I es­pe­cially like the de­tail in the stalk, and the way the fo­cus falls off in the tree to the right of the frame.
