I started shooting mushrooms.... just started "testing". I am so surprised that there is scarcely a photo in the web depicting spores ... OK, I found one or two poor quality shots. I know only one Japanese photographer (Hani) who took mushroom spore photos. He has an excellent photo book. Hani is the first and foremost authority on nature photography. This is an extremely difficult area of nature photo, technically. Again, pictures I am posting here are just a technical test....

The whole, and only, purpose of "mushroom" is for the dispersal of "spores" for these fungi guys. So why take pictures of mushrooms without "spores" raining down like a violent storm in a moist forest in the early morning!!! It is a spectacle of nature! Hani is the only photographer ever succeeded in capturing this wonder of Mother Nature --- https://www.amazon.co.jp/きのこ-―ふわり胞子の舞-ふしぎいっぱい写真絵本-埴沙萠/dp/4591125637/ref=pd_bxgy_img_3/355-7359550-3212067?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=4591125637&pd_rd_r=c2989d53-9c43-4ab9-865c-7c3053ce7084&pd_rd_w=GO5Mz&pd_rd_wg=4UcEr&pf_rd_p=e64b0a81-ca1b-4802-bd2c-a4b65bccc76e&pf_rd_r=E6444G4W35VGRV6S6V4X&psc=1&refRID=E6444G4W35VGRV6S6V4X

My experimental, poor video of mushroom... by Nikon Z7. I am getting a pretty good idea about the exposure to take these spore photos.... The biggest challenge is the lighting and fucus....
