This is the wrong thread. Start your own thread for an ID request and include all the information it asks for.

That said... your mushrooms looks like a Macrolepiota or Chlorophyllum.

Thanks for sharing, lovely!  I wonder if the first one is an emerging Squamanita, but if you don't have photography tips and fancy an ID please start a thread and embed the shots there.

Photography has been a hobby for 10 years, the colors can make the pictures come alive. Thanks for the tips. I've never thought of photographing shrooms. I think I'll try.
Thanks

Yay I can post in it again.

Here's some usefull links for you fine folks.

Gimp - Totally awesome and free editing program, which is very intuitive and easy to use.

Picturenaut - Free HDR (High Dynamic Range) program.  Allows the user to combine multiple versions of the same picture with different exposure settings, allowing dark areas of a shot to be lit up fully without creating problems in the lighter areas of a shot.

CombineZP - Free focus stacking software.  Allows combining of multiple versions of the same image taken at different focus distances to allow for a greater depth of field, paticularily useful in macro photography and microscopy.



Cheers.  :mushroom2:

What is the ID of those red beauties?

Would it have been cheating to take that leaf matter off the one fruit?

Hygrocybe sp. I'd say.

No, I wouldn't have considered it cheating.

Cool.  Thanks.

Looking up the genus, I was struck by the fact that most of the
species that have elaborating links were from down under:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hygrocybe_species

I guess the Aussies are out in front in getting good data into the wiki.

Waxy caps....I might've thought of that...

Hygrocybe miniata was the closest ID I could make.. im still a little unsure, as there were many different hygrocybes around, including h. coccinea, splendidissima, conica, singeri, cantharellus, virginea, and several others i couldnt quite figure out.. one in particular that was a red cap, yellow stipe fading to green... im sure its hygrocybe.. any clues??


-no its not cheating, but I had so many other pictures to take, some just don't get special treatment!

So I'm thinking about getting a camera, but I only have about $100. Anyone got any recommendations? I know most cheap digital cameras these days are all loaded with censors and pretty much do all the work for you, is there any brands that aren't like that?

The Canon Powershot A1200 or Powershot SD1300 are priced pretty low and take great pictures.  You should be able to find even cheaper used ones on ebay or craigslist. 

In the low end cameras they take away the manual modes (M, AV, P) and just give you automatic, which really sucks.  I almost always shoot in M, AV or P. 

Sorry to hear that they are starting to put censors in cameras.  Do they only censor full nudity or do they refuse to take pics of topless people too?  If technology keeps progressing in this direction, soon you will only be able to photograph edible and poisonous mushrooms and you'll have to use an old camera with no censor to take pictures of active species.

Craigslist is a very decent option as well. I buy most of my large purchases on that site now as strange as that might sound. In a few seconds of searching the one for my area I found a Fujifilm Finepix S2800 camera with tripod and small SD card for $90 :thumbup:

Just make sure you meet the person face-to-face, test out/inspect the item thoroughly, and bring a friend with you.

I'm hoping this will help myself and others. I've seen both macroscopic and microscopic images taken that include a measurement guide/key.

Macroscopic: http://agrozoo.net/jsp/Galery_one_image.jsp?id_galery_obfuscated=9932f28a9cab474fa5692162d1c2879a

Microscopic: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/usergallery.php/pid/620077

How does one add an accurate ruler/guide/key thingamajig? Also, are people like Workman using Photoshop to make the multi-image picture above?

The Gimp is good free software for image editing.  It is good for cropping and enhancing mushroom pictures, as well as making composite images.  It does most things photoshop can do and works on mac, linux and windows.
