RE: I found new shrooms!

in Fungi Lovers2 months ago

heyo! love your crop this week. nikv says they are wide spread allover the world except of Antarctic -- but I havent seem them, too! not exactly these ones. and something hints me they would look damn good in monochrome and via macro lens... btw, you mentioned you took the news lens?.. what it was -- 50mm 1.8?


Yup, 50mm 1.8 - still fiddling around with it, but learning with this is easier!

I took tons of shots... lol - unfortunately these tiny things aren't easy to focus on... Many came out blurry on the laptop, sighhh... I read they are edible! Surprise, surprise - not that I would try them! Good to know though... :)

50mm is fantastic lens! was my fave thru the decade. I had 3 in my posession, and dont mind getting more (some manuals, with delicious bokeh). 50mm is powerful and artsy (not for the tint macros...imo). I wish you 100 tonns more of great captures!

Wow, three! :D
Haha, thanks! Not really inspired now to go walkabout for shots - but I really should, since most people are off the streets (not really, lol) and should be able to get more people-free shots... :) We'll see....

most people are off the streets

thats is due to the rain season, right?
maybe thats bad for a streetphoto, but good for other sorts of pictured :P

wow, three!

well, my 1st one was the simplest and cheapest canon 1.8, which i obtained (lol!) for its price, blindly, like a cat in a bag... it was just the only one I could afford at the time back in 2006, hehe. hanging around at this photographer level-up staircase, at some point I changed it to the 1.4 version (which is far better, but still... not enought - in comparison with some others)... and 2 years ago I changed it for Sigma 1.4 version - which is a really perfect one (not an Art series, if you are curious). but I slightly suspect that Sony - Zeiss version is of same quality or maybe even better

and I would like to have some manual 50-mm ones, bokehlicious etc.
i could direct you to one of the posts of axeman (cherries blossom in the evening) made with a very special 50mm lens, but I dont have this link with me rn... maybe you have seen it, tho -- it was applied to Qurator's Bokeh weekly challenge :P

Yeah, I meant, less people in my shots of the city/landmarks, etc - something I've been meaning to do. The heat of day and in the city really puts me off... lol - says the procrastinator! ;) That seems like a good collection... I started getting more serious in photography only recently, while the interest has always been there... so am considered a young hobby for me. Taken me ages to get this lens - my first :)

probably now you will not need any other lens, for ages
unless you will feel intrest in birding (will need tele) or macro (need macro) ;)
