April 21

I think this might be my last time posting a black and white for a while. Until I get better at it. I just stayed around the house today, so this was taken in the woods behind our house walking Clover. I experimented with aperture to see how crisply I could focus the whole mushroom. I liked this angle best because it shows the top, the gills, and the bark-like stem. This was taken at f/32 which is the smallest aperture I can get on my camera. I thought it worked ok. I thought the focus wasn't that strong at the back of the mushroom, but it's really good on the stem and also the front edge of the gills, which I couldn't get at lower settings like f/16.
