Why be satisfied with an average picture

Creating an image of a glowing mushroom is quite simple. With a little bit of creativity you could easily make some interesting pictures. But composing an image that really stands out from the rest, that is something else.

Now, let me tell you a secret. The trick to create really wonderful mushroom light paintings doesn’t lay in the glowing mushroom caps! If you want images that will blow minds away you’ll have to pay extra attention to the whole composition.

Our objective is to compose images that are really astonishing. Not only because they include a glowing mushroom, but because the whole scene screams wow!

Why would you be satisfied with this…
if you can create this…

What you don’t want, is to take a snapshot and then work for hours on it in Photoshop, only to end up with an average image. That kind of tutorials you can find for free on youtube.

We want to take it a step further, we will take it to the next level. Don’t you prefer the whole image to shine, and not alone the mushroom. Do you want to learn how?

Let's create some magic, let the mushrooms glow

We will shoot all images in daylight and turn them into a night scene in post processing. The light painting itself is limited to the mushroom caps and possible supporting subjects, like a glowing leaf for example. These will become the extra light accents within the image, but next to them other elements of light will also play an important role. 

To get best results you have to consider the light composition for the whole image and not only for the mushroom caps. It’s the play of light and dark that really brings the images alive.  The general composition as well as the light composition of the whole image have to be in balance. 

Learn to compose this...
