if you stage the setup before retiring for the evening. At least that’s what I did. I got up and clicked on “Bulb” and waited the minute and half before closing the shutter.
Thanks for the kind words Debbie, Britney, Martin. I hadn’t seen the Obs with the red T. balloui – thanks for pointing that out! Stay tuned . . .
You have inspired me to start tracking the bioluminescent photos here on MO. Thanks! By the way, did you notice another post of Tylopilus balloui just a few days ago in Maryland? This one was almost red. I noticed your publication on the Costa Rica version online earlier today.
wonderful photography and creativeness!
I used a tripod – my hands aren’t that steady! 60 mm macro lens, manual focus, on a Canon EOS7D. The irregular red reflections are from aluminum foil. We (Tim Baroni and I) tried shooting the different color versions of this taxon, and we discovered that the ones with darker gray and bluish gray tinted caps had less, or no luminescence.
I am jealous. I haven’t quite figured out how to capture the bioluminescence, but it is always fun to see!
I appreciate that you detailed how to do it.
